Direct care services at SIHB are provided on a sliding fee basis. Many public and private insurance policies are accepted. Additional funding is received from public and private sources including federal, state and local government agencies.
The agency is a Federally Qualified Health Center for Medicaid and Medicare services. Some programs have restricted enrollment based on grant or contract provisions. All programs of the Seattle Indian Health Board are state-licensed and nationally accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Direct care providers are state-licensed; many are board certified in their respective fields.
The agency is not an Indian Health Service facility. SIHB does contract with the Indian Health Service under Title V of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (PL 94-437).
