Wyoming Medicaid Tribal Uncompensated Care Section 1115 Demonstration

  • Wyoming Medicaid Tribal Uncompensated Care Section 1115 Demonstration (modified: 4 years ago)
    The Wyoming Medicaid Tribal Uncompensated Care Demonstration proposes to financially assist Indian Health Services and tribal health facilities operating under the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (herein referred to as "providers") in their critical role as essential health care providers for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) on the Wind River Indian Reservation. The proposed demonstration has been designed as a disability diversion model intended to provide additional financial resources to qualifying facilities as determined eligible for medical assistance payments as defined in section 1911 [42 U.S.C. 1396]. The supplemental payments to the qualifying facilities will allow them to improve the health outcomes of Wyoming's AI/AN population and divert them from forming a medical condition that will qualify as a disability. The federal public comment period will be open from January 19, 2016 through February 17, 2016.
