Description
 
The Indian Health Service (IHS) provides health care to American Indians and Alaska Natives. When services are unavailable from IHS-funded health care facilities, IHS's contract health services (CHS) program may pay for care from external providers. GAO previously identified challenges regarding the timeliness of CHS payments and also reported on the number of American Indians and Alaska Natives who may gain new health care coverage beginning in 2014 as a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA).This report examined (1) the length of time it takes external providers to receive payment from IHS after delivering CHS services; (2) the performance measures IHS has established for the amount of time it takes to process CHS provider payments; (3) the factors that affect the length of time it takes IHS to pay CHS providers; and (4) how new health care coverage options included in PPACA could affect the CHS program. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
