| Book Description: |
Federal and tribal CHS programs in each of IHS's 12 areas pay for services from external providers if services are not available directly through IHS-funded facilities, if patients meet certain requirements, and if funds are available. IHS uses three primary methods-base funding, annual adjustments, and program increases-to allocate CHS funds to the area offices.
