[FR Doc. 2017–06370 Filed 3–30–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4164–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Indian Health Service Notice To Propose the Re-Designation of the Service Delivery Area for the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation (Smith River Rancheria) Indian Health Service, Department of Health and Human Services. AGENCY: ACTION: Notice. This notice advises the public that the Indian Health Service (IHS) proposes to expand the geographic boundaries of the Service Delivery Area for the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation (Tribe) previously known as the Smith River Rancheria of Smith River, California. The Tolowa Dee-ni’s Tribal Headquarters is located three miles south of the California-Oregon border in Northern California. The entire State of California, excluding the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Marin, Orange, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Kern, Merced, Monterey, Napa, San Benito, San Joaquin, San Luis Obispo, Santa Cruz, Solano, Stanislaus, and Ventura, are designated a Purchased/Referred Care (PRC) Service Delivery Area, formerly referred to as a Contract Health Service Delivery Area, by statute. The current Service Delivery Area for the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation Tribal members is the statutorily established California PRC Service Delivery Area. The expanded PRC Service Delivery Area for the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation includes the statutorily established California PRC sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:31 Mar 30, 2017 Jkt 241001 Service Delivery Area and Curry County in the State of Oregon.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Inspection of Public Comments: All comments received before the close of the comment period are available for viewing by the public, including any personally identifiable or confidential business information that is included in a comment. Background: The IHS currently provides services under regulations codified at 42 CFR part 136, subparts A through C. Subpart C defines a Contract Health Service Delivery Area, now known as PRC Service Delivery Area, as the geographic area within which PRC will be made available by the IHS to members of an identified Indian community who reside in the Service Delivery Area. Potential eligibility for PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16045 services alone, or residence in a PRC Service Delivery Area by a person who is within the scope of the Indian health program, as set forth in 42 CFR 136.12, does not create a legal entitlement to PRC. Services needed, but not available at an IHS/Tribal facility, are provided under the PRC program depending on the availability of funds, the person’s relative medical priority, and the actual availability and accessibility of alternate resources in accordance with the regulations. As applicable to the Tribes, these regulations provide that, unless otherwise designated, a PRC Service Delivery Area shall consist of a county which includes all or part of a reservation and any county or counties which have a common boundary with the reservation, 42 CFR 136.22(a)(6) (2016). The regulations also provide that after consultation with the Tribal governing body or bodies on those reservations included within the PRC Service Delivery Area, the Secretary may from time to time, re-designate areas within the United States for inclusion in or exclusion from a PRC Service Delivery Area. The regulations require that certain criteria must be considered before any re-designation is made. The criteria are as follows: (1) The number of Indians residing in the area proposed to be so included or excluded; (2) Whether the Tribal governing body has determined that Indians residing in the area near the reservation are socially and economically affiliated with the Tribes; (3) The geographic proximity to the reservation of the area whose inclusion or exclusion is being considered; and (4) The level of funding which would be available for the provision of PRC. Additionally, the regulations require that any re-designation of a PRC Service Delivery Area must be made in accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 553). In compliance with this requirement, we are publishing this proposal and requesting public comments. Congress designated the entire state of California as a PRC Service Delivery Area, excluding certain counties, under section 810 of the Indian Healthcare Improvement Act, Public Law 94–437, as amended (25 U.S.C. 1680). IHS has utilized the congressionally established PRC Service Delivery Area for the purposes of administering PRC benefits to members of the Tribe. Thus, members of the Tribe who reside outside of the statutorily established California PRC Service Delivery Area do not reside within the Tolowa Dee-ni’s current PRC E:\FR\FM\31MRN1.SGM 31MRN1 16046 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 61 / Friday, March 31, 2017 / Notices Service Delivery Area and are currently not eligible for PRC services. IHS has historically established PRC Service Delivery Areas in accordance with Congressional intent but has preserved regulatory flexibility to redesignate areas as appropriate for inclusion in or exclusion from PRC service delivery under PRC regulations. One of the criteria for such redesignations is the geographic proximity of the expanded area to the existing reservation or service delivery area. Here, IHS proposes to expand the Tribe’s PRC Service Delivery Area beyond the geographic description in 25 U.S.C. 1680 to include a county adjacent to the Tribe’s existing PRC Service Delivery Area, in a neighboring state. There are already PRC Service Delivery Areas that include part of the state of California and part of another state, for example, Cocopah Tribe of Arizona, (Yuma, Arizona, and Imperial, California); Colorado River Indian Tribes of the Colorado River Indian Reservation, Arizona and California, (La Paz, Arizona; Riverside, California; San Bernardino, California; and Yuma, Arizona); Fort Mojave Indian Tribe of Arizona, California and Nevada, (Nevada; Mohave, Arizona; San Bernardino, California); and the Quechan Tribe of Fort Yuma Indian Reservation, California and Arizona, (Yuma, Arizona; and Imperial, California). The Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation has a significant number of members who are not residents of California. According to the Tribe’s estimates, 177 enrolled Tolowa Dee-ni’ members are nonresidents who remain actively involved with the Tribe, and reside in Curry County in the State of Oregon and are not currently eligible for PRC care. Under 42 CFR 136.23, those otherwise eligible Indians who do not reside on a reservation, but reside within a PRC Service Delivery Area must be either members of the Tribe or other IHS beneficiaries who maintain close economic and social ties with the Tribe. In this case, in applying the aforementioned PRC Service Delivery Area re-designation criteria required by operative regulations codified at 42 CFR part 136, subpart C, the following findings are made: 1. By expanding, the Tribe estimates the current eligible population will be increased by 177. 2. The Tribe has determined that these 177 individuals are members of the Tribe and they are socially and economically affiliated with the Tribe. 3. The expanded area including Curry County in the State of Oregon maintains a common boundary with the State of California and the statutorily created California PRC Service Delivery Area. 4. Generally, the Tribal members located in Curry County in the State of Oregon currently do not use the Indian health system for their PRC health care needs. The Tribe will use its existing Federal allocation for PRC funds to provide services to the expanded population. No additional financial resources will be allocated by IHS to the Tribe to provide services to Tribal members residing in Curry County in the State of Oregon.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Inspection of Public Comments: All comments received before the 
close of the comment period are available for viewing by the public, 
including any personally identifiable or confidential business 
information that is included in a comment.
    Background: The IHS currently provides services under regulations 
codified at 42 CFR part 136, subparts A through C. Subpart C defines a 
Contract Health Service Delivery Area, now known as PRC Service 
Delivery Area, as the geographic area within which PRC will be made 
available by the IHS to members of an identified Indian community who 
reside in the Service Delivery Area. Potential eligibility for services 
alone, or residence in a PRC Service Delivery Area by a person who is 
within the scope of the Indian health program, as set forth in 42 CFR 
136.12, does not create a legal entitlement to PRC. Services needed, 
but not available at an IHS/Tribal facility, are provided under the PRC 
program depending on the availability of funds, the person's relative 
medical priority, and the actual availability and accessibility of 
alternate resources in accordance with the regulations.
    As applicable to the Tribes, these regulations provide that, unless 
otherwise designated, a PRC Service Delivery Area shall consist of a 
county which includes all or part of a reservation and any county or 
counties which have a common boundary with the reservation, 42 CFR 
136.22(a)(6) (2016). The regulations also provide that after 
consultation with the Tribal governing body or bodies on those 
reservations included within the PRC Service Delivery Area, the 
Secretary may from time to time, re-designate areas within the United 
States for inclusion in or exclusion from a PRC Service Delivery Area. 
The regulations require that certain criteria must be considered before 
any re-designation is made. The criteria are as follows:
    (1) The number of Indians residing in the area proposed to be so 
included or excluded;
    (2) Whether the Tribal governing body has determined that Indians 
residing in the area near the reservation are socially and economically 
affiliated with the Tribes;
    (3) The geographic proximity to the reservation of the area whose 
inclusion or exclusion is being considered; and
    (4) The level of funding which would be available for the provision 
of PRC.
    Additionally, the regulations require that any re-designation of a 
PRC Service Delivery Area must be made in accordance with the 
Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 553). In compliance with this 
requirement, we are publishing this proposal and requesting public 
comments.
    Congress designated the entire state of California as a PRC Service 
Delivery Area, excluding certain counties, under section 810 of the 
Indian Healthcare Improvement Act, Public Law 94-437, as amended (25 
U.S.C. 1680). IHS has utilized the congressionally established PRC 
Service Delivery Area for the purposes of administering PRC benefits to 
members of the Tribe. Thus, members of the Tribe who reside outside of 
the statutorily established California PRC Service Delivery Area do not 
reside within the Tolowa Dee-ni's current PRC

[[Page 16046]]

Service Delivery Area and are currently not eligible for PRC services.
    IHS has historically established PRC Service Delivery Areas in 
accordance with Congressional intent but has preserved regulatory 
flexibility to re-designate areas as appropriate for inclusion in or 
exclusion from PRC service delivery under PRC regulations. One of the 
criteria for such re-designations is the geographic proximity of the 
expanded area to the existing reservation or service delivery area. 
Here, IHS proposes to expand the Tribe's PRC Service Delivery Area 
beyond the geographic description in 25 U.S.C. 1680 to include a county 
adjacent to the Tribe's existing PRC Service Delivery Area, in a 
neighboring state. There are already PRC Service Delivery Areas that 
include part of the state of California and part of another state, for 
example, Cocopah Tribe of Arizona, (Yuma, Arizona, and Imperial, 
California); Colorado River Indian Tribes of the Colorado River Indian 
Reservation, Arizona and California, (La Paz, Arizona; Riverside, 
California; San Bernardino, California; and Yuma, Arizona); Fort Mojave 
Indian Tribe of Arizona, California and Nevada, (Nevada; Mohave, 
Arizona; San Bernardino, California); and the Quechan Tribe of Fort 
Yuma Indian Reservation, California and Arizona, (Yuma, Arizona; and 
Imperial, California).
    The Tolowa Dee-ni' Nation has a significant number of members who 
are not residents of California. According to the Tribe's estimates, 
177 enrolled Tolowa Dee-ni' members are non-residents who remain 
actively involved with the Tribe, and reside in Curry County in the 
State of Oregon and are not currently eligible for PRC care.
    Under 42 CFR 136.23, those otherwise eligible Indians who do not 
reside on a reservation, but reside within a PRC Service Delivery Area 
must be either members of the Tribe or other IHS beneficiaries who 
maintain close economic and social ties with the Tribe. In this case, 
in applying the aforementioned PRC Service Delivery Area re-designation 
criteria required by operative regulations codified at 42 CFR part 136, 
subpart C, the following findings are made:
    1. By expanding, the Tribe estimates the current eligible 
population will be increased by 177.
    2. The Tribe has determined that these 177 individuals are members 
of the Tribe and they are socially and economically affiliated with the 
Tribe.
    3. The expanded area including Curry County in the State of Oregon 
maintains a common boundary with the State of California and the 
statutorily created California PRC Service Delivery Area.
    4. Generally, the Tribal members located in Curry County in the 
State of Oregon currently do not use the Indian health system for their 
PRC health care needs. The Tribe will use its existing Federal 
allocation for PRC funds to provide services to the expanded 
population. No additional financial resources will be allocated by IHS 
to the Tribe to provide services to Tribal members residing in Curry 
County in the State of Oregon.
