DEADLINE EXTENDED: Maintain Status on the HHS Essential Community Provider List

The deadline for Tribes and Tribal organizations to maintain their status on the Essential Community Provider (ECP) List has been extended to Friday, January 15, 2016.

Self-Governance Health Reform Experts developed a brief to provide guidance to Indian health care providers (IHCPs) on the steps they need to take to update information or obtain placement on the list of ECPs for benefit year 2017.  IHCPs and other providers that seek to obtain placement on the HHS ECP List, or to update information in a current entry, must submit a petition to HHS.
