Final Policy on Conferring With Urban Indian Organizations
Document Number: 2014-23005
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-09-29
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Indian Health Service
The Indian Health Service (IHS or ``the Agency'') is issuing this Notice to implement the final Policy for conferring with Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs). In March 2010, the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (IHCIA) was reauthorized and amended as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Public Law 111-148, as amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (together, the Affordable Care Act), Public Law 111-152. One of the changes made to the IHCIA was to create a new requirement that the IHS ``confer'' with UIOs, to the maximum extent practicable, in carrying out the IHCIA.
