Committed to care
We’re committed to the Indian Child Welfare Act. This act supports health and safety in American Indian youth and families. It also says that tribes have a choice where the child gets health care. Here are some facts about coverage:
- When a child enters foster care, they can get coverage from Mercy Care DCS CHP.
- A child's tribe can also choose to get health care for the child through a Tribal RBHA (T/RBHA) if one is available. Or through the Indian Health Service (IHS) or a Tribal 638 Facility.
- A child who is in tribal foster care but is not in custody of Department of Child Safety (DCS) won’t have Mercy Care DCS CHP coverage.
We value our partnership with the IHS and tribal nations in the care of tribal members. And we promote services that support the well-being of American Indian families.
We’re here to help. Email Betty John, Tribal Liaison, to connect you to the info and resources you need.
