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 in effect on September 15, 1987 and IHS republished at 42 CFR part 136, subparts A–C. Subpart C defines a PRCDA 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 area. Residence in a PRCDA by a person who is within the scope of the Indian health program, as set forth in 42 CFR 136.12, creates no 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 PRCDA shall consist of a county which includes all or part of a reservation and any county or counties that have a common PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Total annual burden hours boundary with the reservation [42 CFR 136.22(a)(6)]. The regulations also provide that after consultation with the tribal governing body or bodies on those reservations included within the PRCDA, the Secretary may periodically re-designate areas within the United States (U.S.) for inclusion in or exclusion from a PRCDA. The regulations require that certain criteria must be considered before any redesignation 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 PRCDA 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. The Havasupai Tribe’s home is in Coconino County, Arizona, at the bottom of an extremely rugged section of the Grand Canyon. The reservation lies 3,000 feet below the canyon rim, surrounded by U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service lands. The reservation was initially established by an Executive Order on June 8, 1880. The Grand Canyon National Park Enlargement Act on March 4, 1944, set aside certain public domain lands and provided for an exchange of Stateowned lands to be added to the reservation, bringing it to its present size. The IHS operates a health station in the Havasupai Tribe’s Village of Supai, Arizona, within Coconino County. When the health care needs of Havasupai Tribal members’ are greater than the available services at the IHS health station, tribal members often move from Supai, Arizona, to the City of Kingman, Arizona. The City of E:\FR\FM\05MRN1.SGM 05MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 43 / Tuesday, March 5, 2019 / Notices Kingman is located in Mojave County, which is the nearest location that provides higher levels of health care services. The Havasupai Tribe’s current PRCDA is Coconino County in the State of Arizona. The IHS administratively established this PRCDA, based upon the location of the tribe’s reservation, for the purposes of administering PRC benefits to tribal members. Members of the tribe who reside outside of Coconino County do not reside within the tribe’s PRCDA, meaning they are not currently eligible for PRC services.42 One of the criteria for re-designation is the geographic proximity of the expanded area to the existing reservation or delivery area. IHS proposes to expand the Havasupai Tribe’s PRCDA to include Mojave County, which is adjacent to the existing PRCDA, in the State of Arizona. The Havasupai Tribe has a significant number of members who are residents of the shared county boundary with Mojave County. According to the most recent IHS Active User reports, there are approximately 122 enrolled Havasupai Tribal members who reside in Mojave County, Arizona, and remain actively involved with the tribe. Under 42 CFR 136.23, those otherwise eligible Indians who do not reside on a reservation, but reside within a PRCDA, 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 Delivery Area redesignation criteria required by operative regulations codified at 42 CFR part 136, subpart C, the following findings are made: 1. By expanding, the IHS estimates the current eligible population will be increased by 122. 2. The Havasupai Tribe has determined that these 122 individuals are members of the Havasupai Tribe and 7911 they are socially and economically affiliated with the Havasupai Tribe. 3. The expanded area including Mojave County in the State of Arizona maintains a common boundary with the statutorily created Coconino County PRCDA. 4. Generally, the Havasupai Tribal members located in Mojave County in the State of Arizona currently do not use the Indian health system for their PRC health care needs. The Havasupai Tribe will use its existing federal allocation for PRC funds to provide health care services to the expanded population. No additional financial resources will be allocated by the IHS to the Havasupai Tribe to provide services to tribal members residing in Mojave County in the State of Arizona.

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 
in effect on September 15, 1987 and IHS republished at 42 CFR part 136, 
subparts A-C. Subpart C defines a PRCDA 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 area. Residence in a PRCDA by a 
person who is within the scope of the Indian health program, as set 
forth in 42 CFR 136.12, creates no 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 PRCDA shall consist of a county which includes 
all or part of a reservation and any county or counties that have a 
common boundary with the reservation [42 CFR 136.22(a)(6)]. The 
regulations also provide that after consultation with the tribal 
governing body or bodies on those reservations included within the 
PRCDA, the Secretary may periodically re-designate areas within the 
United States (U.S.) for inclusion in or exclusion from a PRCDA. 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 
PRCDA 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. The Havasupai Tribe's 
home is in Coconino County, Arizona, at the bottom of an extremely 
rugged section of the Grand Canyon. The reservation lies 3,000 feet 
below the canyon rim, surrounded by U.S. Forest Service and National 
Park Service lands. The reservation was initially established by an 
Executive Order on June 8, 1880. The Grand Canyon National Park 
Enlargement Act on March 4, 1944, set aside certain public domain lands 
and provided for an exchange of State-owned lands to be added to the 
reservation, bringing it to its present size.
    The IHS operates a health station in the Havasupai Tribe's Village 
of Supai, Arizona, within Coconino County. When the health care needs 
of Havasupai Tribal members' are greater than the available services at 
the IHS health station, tribal members often move from Supai, Arizona, 
to the City of Kingman, Arizona. The City of

[[Page 7911]]

Kingman is located in Mojave County, which is the nearest location that 
provides higher levels of health care services.
    The Havasupai Tribe's current PRCDA is Coconino County in the State 
of Arizona. The IHS administratively established this PRCDA, based upon 
the location of the tribe's reservation, for the purposes of 
administering PRC benefits to tribal members. Members of the tribe who 
reside outside of Coconino County do not reside within the tribe's 
PRCDA, meaning they are not currently eligible for PRC services.\42\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \42\ Members of the Tribe may be eligible for PRC in other 
counties based upon their residence on another Tribe's reservation, 
or their residence within another Tribe's PRCDA and close economic 
and social ties with that Tribe.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    One of the criteria for re-designation is the geographic proximity 
of the expanded area to the existing reservation or delivery area. IHS 
proposes to expand the Havasupai Tribe's PRCDA to include Mojave 
County, which is adjacent to the existing PRCDA, in the State of 
Arizona. The Havasupai Tribe has a significant number of members who 
are residents of the shared county boundary with Mojave County. 
According to the most recent IHS Active User reports, there are 
approximately 122 enrolled Havasupai Tribal members who reside in 
Mojave County, Arizona, and remain actively involved with the tribe.
    Under 42 CFR 136.23, those otherwise eligible Indians who do not 
reside on a reservation, but reside within a PRCDA, 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 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 IHS estimates the current eligible population 
will be increased by 122.
    2. The Havasupai Tribe has determined that these 122 individuals 
are members of the Havasupai Tribe and they are socially and 
economically affiliated with the Havasupai Tribe.
    3. The expanded area including Mojave County in the State of 
Arizona maintains a common boundary with the statutorily created 
Coconino County PRCDA.
    4. Generally, the Havasupai Tribal members located in Mojave County 
in the State of Arizona currently do not use the Indian health system 
for their PRC health care needs. The Havasupai Tribe will use its 
existing federal allocation for PRC funds to provide health care 
services to the expanded population. No additional financial resources 
will be allocated by the IHS to the Havasupai Tribe to provide services 
to tribal members residing in Mojave County in the State of Arizona.

requirements subject to prior approval by the Office of Management and 
Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980.
