SUPPLEMENTAL 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. Many of the newly recognized/restored/reaffirmed Tribes do not have reservations and either Congress has legislatively designated counties to serve as SDAs or the Director, IHS, exercised reasonable administrative discretion to designate SDAs to effectuate the intent of Congress for these Tribes. The Director, IHS, published notice of the establishment of SDAs in the June 21, 2007 FR Notice (72 FR 34262-01). The SDAs function as CHSDAs for the purposes of operating a CHS program pursuant to the ISDEAA, Public Law 93-638. Thus, the CHSDA list incorporates the SDAs that operate as CHSDAs for newly recognized/restored/reaffirmed Tribes. At 42 CFR 136 Subpart C, a CHSDA is defined 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 within a CHSDA 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 CHS but only potential eligibility for services. Services needed but not available at an 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).

On December 30, 2011, the Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs reaffirmed the Federal recognition of the Tejon Indian Tribe and the government-to-government relationship between the United States and the Tribe. The Tejon Indian Tribe is located in Kern County in the State of California. After consultation with the Tribal governing body, the SDA for the Tribe was agreed upon. The purpose of this FR Notice is to notify the public that the IHS now administratively designates Kern County as the Tejon Indian Tribe's SDA. In California, Congress designated the entire state as a CHSDA, excluding certain counties (including Kern County) under section 810 of the Indian Healthcare Improvement Act, Public Law 94-437, as amended (25 U.S.C. 1680). The Director, IHS, may establish SDAs for the purpose of providing CHS for newly recognized/restored/reaffirmed Tribes that were not covered by Congress' establishment of certain counties in California as a CHSDA. These SDAs may include all or part of counties that are not included in the Congressional establishment.

Under 42 CFR 136.23, 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 estimated the eligible user population to be 377 enrolled Tejon Indian Tribal members who are actively involved with the Tribe.

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.
