Patient Benefits Program

Klamath Tribal Health & Family Services (KTHFS) provides services to its patients by contracting with the Indian Health Service.  Funding received is limited; therefore, patients are asked to apply for other state and federal resources for which they may be eligible.  Eligibility through other state and federal resources enhances the overall quality of care for patients.  When payment for services rendered are received by a tribal health program, additional revenues help us provide greater access to quality care, more equipment, medical specialists, improvement of existing services, and more.

We can help:

KTHFS offers personnel who specialize in assisting clients with the application process.  Patient Benefits Coordinators are available to distribute and receive application information.  One-on-one appointments, home visits, and transportation to local health resource agencies are available.
