OHCA Policies and Rules

317:30-5-1100. Inpatient care provided by IHS facilities

[Revised 09-01-16]

Inpatient practitioner services are separately contracted and paid at a fee-for-service rate. Each individual inpatient practitioner must be contracted with SoonerCare and attached to a SoonerCare contracted medical group. The Inpatient hospital per diem rate for inpatient medical care provided by IHS facilities is published annually in the Federal Register or Federal Register Notices. In order to receive the inpatient hospital per diem rate, the IHS or Tribal 638 facility must:

(1) be contracted as a provider with the Oklahoma Health Care Authority; and

(2) appear on the IHS maintained listing of IHS-operated and Indian health care facilities operating under a 638 agreement. It is the sole responsibility of the facility to petition IHS for placement on this list.
