Can tribal clinics be treated as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program? CMS previously issued guidance stating that health care facilities owned and operated by American Indian and Alaska Native tribes and tribal organizations ("tribal clinics") with funding authorized by the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (Public Law 93-638, as amended) must be reimbursed as FQHCs in order to be considered FQHCs in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. CMS revised this policy and will allow any such tribal clinics to be considered as FQHCs for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, regardless of their reimbursement arrangements.
