Consultations and meetings

Tribal consultations and roundtables

See below for scheduled consultations and roundtables. Tribal consultations or roundtables can be initiated by tribes or the Health Care Authority.

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.

Regularly scheduled meetings

Our regularly scheduled meetings include:

  • Tribal monthly meetings: For tribal leaders and health care providers. Normally held the fourth Monday of the month, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at HCA. Please send us suggestions for meeting topics.
  • Tribal billing workgroup: For tribal health care billing staff. Normally held the second Wednesday of the month, from 9-11 a.m. at HCA. Please send us suggestions for meeting topics.
  • Tribes-MCOs quarterly meetings: For Tribal Health Programs and MCOs to discuss issues regarding managed care services, coverage, and payment to Tribal Health Programs, including Urban Indian Health Organizations. Please send us suggestions for meeting topics. Note: Future MCO-Tribes meeting information is posted here when confirmed.
