SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The IHS currently provides services under regulations in effect on September 15, 1987 and IHS republished at 42 CFR part 136, subparts A-C. Subpart C defines a Contract Health Service Delivery Area (CHSDA) as the geographic area within which CHS will be made available by the IHS to members of an identified Indian community who reside in the area. Residence with a CHSDA or SDA by a person who is within the scope of the Indian health program, as set forth in 42 CFR 136.12, creates no legal entitlement to contract health services but only potential eligibility for services. Services needed but not available at a IHS/Tribal facility are provided under the CHS program depending on the availability of funds, the person's relative medical priority, and the actual availability and accessibility of alternate resources in accordance with the regulations.

As applicable to the Tribes, these regulations provide that, unless otherwise designated, a CHSDA shall consist of a county which includes all or part of a reservation and any county or counties which have a common boundary with the reservation (42 CFR 136.22(a)(6) (2007). The regulations also provide that after consultation with the Tribal governing body or bodies of those reservations included in the CHSDA, the Secretary may, from time to time, re-designate areas within the United States for inclusion in or exclusion from a CHDSA. The regulations require that certain criteria must be considered before any re-designation is made. The criteria are as follows:

(1) The number of Indians residing in the area proposed to be so included or excluded;

(2) Whether the Tribal governing body has determined that Indians residing in the area near the reservation are socially and economically affiliated with the Tribes;

(3) The geographic proximity to the reservation of the area whose inclusion or exclusion is being considered; and

(4) The level of funding which would be available for the provision of contract health services.

Additionally, the regulations require that any re-designation of a CHSDA must be made in accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 553). In compliance with this requirement, we are publishing this proposal and requesting public comment.

The purpose of this FR notice is to notify the public of the request of the Cowlitz Indian Tribe to expand their SDA as presented in their 08-3 Tribal resolution dated January 5, 2008, and 08-56 Tribal resolution, dated December 06, 2008. The Tribe's request will expand their current SDA which incorporates Cowlitz, Clark, Skamania, King, Pierce, Thurston and Lewis Counties in the State of Washington, to include Columbia County in the State of Oregon, and Kittitas and Wahkiakum Counties in the State of Washington.

Under 42 CFR 136.23 those otherwise eligible Indians who do not reside on a reservation but reside within a CHSDA must be either members of the Tribe or maintain close economic and social ties with the Tribe. In this case, the Tribe estimates the current eligible population will be increased by 35 individuals' enrolled Cowlitz members who are actively involved with the Tribe, but not eligible for health services.

In applying the aforementioned CHSDA re-designation criteria required by operative regulations (43 FR 35654), the following findings are made:

1. Columbia County, Oregon is contiguous with Clark County in the state of Washington. Kittitas County is contiguous to King County and Wahkiakum County is contiguous to Lewis in the State of Washington.

2. These three counties are not part of any other Tribes CHSDA.

3. It is important for the Cowlitz Indian Tribe to be able to deliver health care services to enrolled members residing in these three counties. The Tribe believes eligible Tribal members living in the counties proposed for expansion should also be eligible for CHS.

4. Most of the 35 Tribal members use the Cowlitz Clinic in Longview, Washington for their health care needs. It is estimated that members have a 40 minute drive to receive their health care. These Tribal members do not currently receive care under the CHS program.

5. The financial resources required to meet the immediate needs of the Tribal members residing in the three counties will not be substantial as the Tribe will use existing Federal allocations for contract health funds.

Since CHS is a critical component of the Tribes' overall health care system for its members, the Tribe feels that the members residing in the three counties should be included within the SDA for the Tribe.

Accordingly, after considering the Tribes' request in light of the criteria specified in the regulations, the IHS is proposing to re-designate the SDA for the Tribe to consist of Columbia County in the State of Oregon and Kittitas and Wahkiakum Counties in the State of Washington.

This notice does not contain reporting or recordkeeping requirements subject to prior approval by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980.
