NCUIH Submits Joint Comments on Colorado Medicaid Waiver

On December 8, NCUIH submitted joint comments with the National Indian Health Board on Colorado's proposed Section 1115 Medicaid waiver, Expanding the Substance Use Disorder Continuum of Care.  In the comments, we noted the trust obligation and the importance of Medicaid to Tribes and Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs).  To that end, the comments expressed concern with lack of meaningful state consultation and encouraged the state to conduct further engagement with Indian Health Care Providers within the state and also advised that the expanded continuum of care program must be inclusive of I/T/U facilities.
