Tribal Child? Establish a Tribal Medical Home.

Alaska foster parents recently received a letter from OCS Director Christy Lawton asking that foster parents help Alaska Native children placed in state custody be connected to a tribal health organization. This will assist with maximizing the Medicaid resource available to the state that will in turn help ease the burden on Alaska’s general fund budget. Read Director Christy Lawton’s letter here.
