The Tribal Health Department manages tribal funds, federal funds, health insurance collections, and grants to provide health care services to tribal members and health center beneficiaries. These funds are deposited into one of three accounts, which helps ensure tribal funds are used for enrolled tribal members only. Federal and grant funds are used for enrolled tribal members and all other Native American and Alaska Native beneficiaries who receive health-related services.

All individuals that seek care through the Southern Ute Tribal Health Department are required to apply for the governmental benefits for which they qualify; which include but are not limited to:
