The Referral Services Division utilizes the Tribal Resource Pool and Federal Contract Health Services (CHS) funds to pay for referrals. Referrals are made when medically necessary services are not available from one of the tribal health divisions or programs including the health center. CHS funds are used to pay Priority I referrals initiated by the Southern Ute Health Center. CHS funds are utilized for all health center beneficiaries who are CHS eligible. Tribal Resource Pool funds are only used to pay for enrolled Tribal member medically necessary referrals not covered by CHS. Referral services also reimburse tribal members for health insurance co-pay amounts or deductibles of $15 or more.
