Township or Tribe) in Maine. This notice does not propose to change or

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Inspection of Public Comments: All comments received before the 
close of the comment period are available for viewing by the public, 
including any personally identifiable or confidential business 
information that is included in a comment.
    Background: The Maine Indian Claims Settlement Act of 1980 (Pub. L. 
96-420; H. Rept. 96-1353) includes the intent of Congress to fund and 
provide PRC to the Passamaquoddy Tribe. The Passamaquoddy Tribe has two 
reservations: Indian Township and Pleasant Point. The PRC SDA for the 
Indian Township reservation is Aroostook County, ME, and Washington 
County, ME. The PRC SDA for the Pleasant Point reservation is 
Washington County, ME, south of State Route 9, and Aroostook County, 
ME.
    The IHS currently provides services under regulations codified at 
42 CFR part 136, subparts A through C. Subpart C defines a Purchased/
Referred Care (PRC) Service Delivery Area (SDA), formerly referred to 
as a Contract Health Service Delivery Area, as the geographic area 
within which PRC will be made available by the IHS to members of an 
identified Indian community who reside in the area. Residence in a PRC 
SDA by a person who is within the scope of the Indian health program, 
as set forth in 42 CFR 136.12, creates no legal entitlement to PRC but 
only potential eligibility for services. Services needed but not 
available at an IHS/Tribal facility are provided under the PRC program 
depending on the availability of funds, the person's relative medical 
priority, and the actual availability and accessibility of alternate 
resources in accordance with the regulations.
    As applicable to the Tribes, these regulations provide that, unless 
otherwise designated, a PRC SDA shall consist of a county which 
includes all or part of a reservation and any county or counties which 
have a common boundary with the reservation. 42 CFR 136.22(a)(6). The 
regulations also provide that after consultation with the Tribal 
governing body or bodies on those reservations included within the PRC 
SDA, the Secretary may from time to time, re-designate areas within the 
United States for inclusion in or exclusion from a PRC SDA. The 
regulations require that certain criteria must be considered before any 
re-designation is made. The criteria are as follows:
    (1) The number of Indians residing in the area proposed to be so 
included or excluded;
    (2) Whether the Tribal governing body has determined that Indians 
residing in the area near the reservation are socially and economically 
affiliated with the Tribe;
    (3) The geographic proximity to the reservation of the area whose 
inclusion or exclusion is being considered; and
    (4) The level of funding which would be available for the provision 
of PRC. 42 CFR 136.22(b).
    Additionally, the regulations require that any re-designation of a 
PRC SDA must be made in accordance with the Administrative Procedures 
Act (5 U.S.C. 553). See 42 CFR 136.22(c). In compliance with this 
requirement, we are publishing this proposal and requesting public 
comments.
    The Passamaquoddy Tribe is a federally recognized tribe with two 
separate reservations, Indian Township and Pleasant Point, located 
approximately 50 miles apart. Each respective reservation elects its 
own governing body and each reservation has a separate PRC SDA. The 
Indian Township reservation of the Passamaquoddy Tribe has a PRC SDA 
consisting of Aroostook and Washington Counties in the State of Maine. 
The PRC SDA for the Passamaquoddy Tribe's reservation at Pleasant Point 
is Washington County, Maine, south of State Route 9, and Aroostook 
County, Maine. IHS adopted a PRC SDA for each of the Passamaquoddy 
Tribe's reservations for the purposes of administering benefits under 
the IHS PRC program. Thus, members of the Tribe who reside outside of 
Aroostook and Washington Counties do not reside within the PRC SDA of 
the Passamaquoddy Tribe and they are currently not eligible for PRC 
services from the Tribe.
    The Passamaquoddy Tribe has a significant number of members who are 
not residents of Aroostook and Washington Counties. According to Tribal 
estimates, 257 enrolled Passamaquoddy members reside in Hancock County 
in the State of Maine and remain actively involved with the Tribe, but 
they are not currently eligible for PRC care. The Tribe provides direct 
services to its members by operating a clinic in Washington County.
    Under 42 CFR 136.23, those otherwise eligible Indians who do not 
reside on a reservation but reside within a PRC service delivery area 
must be either members of the Tribe or maintain close economic and 
social ties with the Tribe. In this case, in applying the 
aforementioned PRC service delivery area re-designation criteria 
required by operative regulations (43 FR 34654), the following findings 
are made:
    1. By expanding, the Tribe estimates the current eligible 
population will be increased by 257.
    2. The Tribe has determined that these 257 individuals are socially 
and economically affiliated with the Tribe.
    3. The expanded area, Hancock County, ME, maintains a common 
boundary with Washington County, ME, the county in which the Tribe's 
Indian Township reservation is located.
    4. The Tribe will use its existing Federal allocation for PRC funds 
to provide services to the expanded population. No additional financial 
resources will be allocated by IHS to the Tribe to provide services to 
Tribal members residing in Hancock County.
    Accordingly, the purpose of this Federal Register notice is to 
notify the public of the proposal to expand the PRC service delivery 
area of the Passamaquoddy Tribe's Indian Township reservation to 
include Hancock County in the State of Maine. The proposed notice will 
expand their current service delivery area to include Hancock County in 
the State of Maine.
