NCUIH RELEASES 2021 LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES

NCUIH is pleased to announce the release of the 2021 Legislative Priorities. NCUIH hosted five focus groups to identify Urban Indian Organization (UIO) policy priorities for 2021, as they relate to Indian Health Service (IHS)-designated facility types (full ambulatory, limited ambulatory, outreach and referral, and outpatient and residential). The top priorities for 2021 include $200.5 million for UIOs in FY22, advance appropriations, behavioral health funding for UIOs, full 100% FMAP for UIOs permanently, removal of facilities restrictions and the establishment of an urban confer policy at HHS, among others. NCUIH will continue to work with Congress on advancing these priorities on behalf of UIOs for 2021.

Why Does this Matter to UIOs?:

The current public health crisis has exacerbated the need for legislative action as it pertains to UIOs.
