Indian and Tribal Health

The Indian Health Service provides health care services to American Indians in federal hospitals. Some individual tribes also operate their own health care facilities. Services Indians cannot receive in Indian hospitals, such as specialty services, are sometimes authorized in other hospitals by the IHS.

The IHS has compacted with some tribes to operate health facilities for Indians, including hospitals.

As federal facilities, Indian Health Service hospitals are not subject to regulation by the Oklahoma State Department of Health.
