DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

Indian Health Service


Notice of Service Delivery Area Designation for the Mashpee 
Wampanoag Indian Tribe

AGENCY: Indian Health Service, HHS.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This Notice advises the public that the Indian Health Service 
(IHS) established the geographic boundaries of the Service Delivery 
Area (SDA) for the newly recognized Mashpee Wampanoag Indian Tribe. The 
SDA was established on December 22, 2008 and services were provided to 
eligible beneficiaries beginning on January 19, 2009. The Mashpee SDA 
is comprised of Barnstable, Bristol, Norfolk, Plymouth and Suffolk 
counties in the State of Massachusetts. The counties listed are 
designated administratively as the SDA, to function as a Contract 
Health Service Delivery Area (CHSDA), for the purposes of operating a 
Contract Health Service (CHS) program pursuant to the Indian Self-
Determination and Education Assistant Act (ISDEAA), Public Law 93-638.

DATES: This notice is effective 30 days after date of publication in 
the Federal Register (FR).

ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed to Betty Gould, Regulations Officer, 
Indian Health Service, 801 Thompson Avenue, Suite 450, Rockville, 
Maryland 20852. Comments will be made available for public inspection 
at this address from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday beginning 
approximately two weeks after publication of this notice.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carl Harper, Director, Office of 
Resource Access and Partnerships, Indian Health Service, 801 Thompson 
Avenue, Suite 360, Rockville, Maryland 20852. Telephone 301/443-2694 
(This is not a toll free number).

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. Many of the newly recognized 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 
Tribes. At 42 CFR part 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 contract health services 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). In 
the Federal Register on February 22, 2007 (72 FR 8007), the Mashpee 
Wampanoag Indian Tribe was officially recognized as an Indian Tribe 
within the meaning of Federal law. 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 of the Mashpee Wampanoag Indian 
Tribe SDA to incorporate Barnstable, Bristol, Norfolk, Plymouth and 
Suffolk counties in the State of Massachusetts. The SDA was established 
on December 22, 2008 and services were provided to eligible 
beneficiaries beginning on January 19, 2009.
    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 estimated the eligible user 
population to be 1,422 enrolled Mashpee Wampanoag members who are 
actively involved with the Tribe.
    The Mashpee Wampanoag Indian Tribe is located in the town of 
Mashpee, Barnstable County, Massachusetts, on the southeastern portion 
of Cape Cod along Nantucket Sound. A significant number of the Mashpee 
Wampanoag SDA eligible user population also reside in the counties of 
Bristol, Norfolk, Plymouth and Suffolk counties in the state of 
Massachusetts. These five counties are adjacent to each other. 
Barnstable, Bristol, Norfolk, Plymouth and Suffolk counties are not 
part of any other Tribe's CHSDA or SDA. It is important for the Mashpee 
Wampanoag Indian Tribe to be able to deliver health care services to 
enrolled members residing in these five counties. The Tribe believes 
eligible Tribal members living in the counties of the proposed SDA 
should also be eligible for CHS. The financial resources required to 
meet the immediate needs of the Tribal members residing in the five 
counties were determined by the IHS and were placed in the Nashville 
Area CHS budget. Since
    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.
