The Wellness Center operates on an annual budget of $5 million dollars. 100% of our funds are from the United States Government or what is termed federal funds.
Funding is generated from three primary sources:
- IHS, PL 93-638 Contract Health; Federal Funds that flow through Indian Health Services from Washington D. C. down to the Region Office in Albuquerque, NM then to Phoenix Area Offices in Phoenix, AZ.
- Federal grants and initiatives have generated $892,000 during 2009-2010.
- The other source and the largest revenue comes from Program Revenue. The program bills Medicaid for its service. In Arizona Medicaid is handled by Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System or better known as AHCCCS.
The Tribe is not required to pay for any part of the Wellness Center program's costs because it generates its own program revenue. That revenue can only be used to provide behavioral health program needs.
