Tribal providers must take action by January 8, 2016 to maintain their status on the HHS Essential Community Provider list.  Read below to learn more about the resources available to assist you.

On December 16, 2015, the TSGAC hosted a Webinar regarding the “New Process to Retain Status as an Essential Community Provider (ECP)”.  This brief provides guidance to Indian health care providers (IHCPs) on the action needed to remain or obtain placement on the list of ECPs maintained by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS ECP List) in benefit year 2017.

PLEASE NOTE: IHS and CMS are hosting an additional Webinar on this process on Monday, December 21st.  Please click here for more information about the Webinar.
