Health

The Samish Health Department includes Purchased & Referred Care (formerly Contract Health) and Public Health & Diabetes. Both departments offer a range of services to assist with the health & wellness needs of Samish Tribal Members.

  • Public Health & Diabetes: The Samish Indian Nation Health Program offers a varied scope of services to assist with the health and wellness needs of our Tribal Members. Public Health’s award winning Diabetes Project delivers ongoing case management outreach and support for Samish members with diabetes.

  • Purchased & Referred Care: Enrolled members of the Samish Indian Nation whose permanent residence is within a ten county region (Whatcom, Skagit, Kitsap, Snohomish, King, Island, San Juan, Pierce, Jefferson and Clallam) are eligible for Purchased and Referred Care Services. In order to access this assistance, clients must register with the PRC office, and abide by the Samish PRC program guidelines. In general, PRC may pay for physician and other health professional services, dental services, prescriptions, vision care, physical therapy, hearing aids and mental health services.
