American Indians can continue or begin to use tribal and Indian Health Services (IHS) clinics. We won't require prior approval or impose any conditions for you to get services at these clinics. For elders age 65 years and older this includes Elderly Waiver (EW) services accessed through the tribe. If a doctor or other provider in a tribal or IHS clinic refers you to a provider in our network, you don't need to see your primary care provider before the referral.
