The Tribal Technical Advisory Group (TTAG) is composed of elected Tribal leaders, or an appointed representative from their area, who are nominated from the 12 areas of the Indian Health Service (IHS) delivery System.
The TTAG serves as an advisory committee to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on important health care matters associated with the Medicare, Medicaid, and State Children Health Insurance Programs. There is a Principal Member and an Alternate from each of the 12 IHS service areas. These areas are: Alaska, Aberdeen, Albuquerque, Bemidji, Billings, California, Nashville, Navajo, Oklahoma, Phoenix, Portland, and Tucson.
In addition to these 12 areas, there is representation from the 3 Washington, D.C.-based advocacy organizations: Tribal Self Governance Advisory Committee, National Indian Health Board, and National Congress of American Indians.
The CMS TTAG website is a great resource on Medicare and Medicaid policy and how they affect Indian Country.
