Virtual CMS ITU Outreach and Education Trainings
Due to travel and training restrictions issued as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CMS Division of Tribal Affairs will be offering virtual training to business office staff, patient registration staff, HIM staff, and benefits coordinator in each IHS Area. ITU staff are encouraged to register for the training being held for their respective areas as the agendas will be developed to address issues for particular Areas and State Medicaid/CHIP presentations for states located in the IHS Areas. However, if you are not able to attend a particular topic during your Area training event, you may register for webinars in other Areas.
Please check CMS’s website periodically for more information as these virtual events are scheduled and opened for registration.
Upcoming Virtual ITU Trainings:
IHS Albuquerque Area: September 14–25
IHS Billings Area: September 21–30
IHS Partnership: September 28-October 6
ACL Title VI: September 29 - October
The CMS Division of Tribal Affairs is committed to improving the health of American Indians and Alaska Natives and increasing access to care throughout Indian Country. To that end, it provides resources that promote wellness and encourage people to enroll in health care coverage.
One of the newest resources is an 18-month 2020-2021 Calendar (PDF) which can be downloaded and printed for personal use. People can choose to print out one month at a time, rather than all 18 months at once. Additionally, hard copies of the calendar are available at no charge from the Tribal Products Ordering Page.
