BACKGROUND

The Indian Health Service (IHS), an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services, is responsible for providing federal health services to American Indians and Alaska Natives. The provision of health services to members of federally recognized tribes grew out of the special government-to-government relationship between the federal government and Indian tribes. This relationship, established in 1787, is based on Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, and has been given form and substance by numerous treaties, laws, Supreme Court decisions, and Executive Orders. The IHS is the principal federal health care provider and health advocate for Indian people and its goal is to raise their health status to the highest possible level. The IHS provides a comprehensive health service delivery system for American Indians and Alaska Natives who are members of 566 federally recognized Tribes across the U.S.

The IHS Office of Information Technology/Division of Information Technology request is to ensure the RPMS and EHR systems have the current CPT code set available to meet reimbursement and other reporting requirements required by law and federal reimbursement agencies, namely the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The CPT code set within RPMS/EHR reflects tasks and procedures services which medical practitioners provide to patients, including, medical, surgical and diagnostic services.
