Consultations and meetings

Tribal consultations and roundtables

Look below to see upcoming meeting dates and materials from previous meetings.

What is the difference between a roundtable and a consultation?

  • At a roundtable, the main goal is to give and receive information.
  • At a consultation, the main goals are to address issues and concerns, and make decisions.

Tribes or the Health Care Authority (HCA) can initiate consultations and roundtables.
