Health Clinic

Our Mission

It’s our mission to promote wellness, prevent disease, and treat diseases within the Sac & Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa community.  As an organization, we are committed to working in partnership with the community to support health and wellness, to provide healthcare for individuals and families in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing process.

Patient Portal

Our secure patient portal allows you to exchange secure messages with your physician, receive test results and requisitions, and helps you maintain an ongoing healthcare relationship with your doctor and practice staff.  

Direct Care Services

Direct Care is care that is provided within the Meskwaki Tribal Health Clinic. The patient must meet the following requirements to be eligible for Direct Care: 

  • The patient is required to provide proof of being an enrolled member, or a descendant of an enrolled member, of a federally recognized tribe
  • A 30 Day Requirement for Proof Notice is signed by the patient. This notice allows the patient 30 days from the date signed to provide this proof to the clinic. If proof is not provided, routine/non-emergency care will be discontinued.

Other Eligible Persons: 

  • Non-Indian woman pregnant with an eligible Indian’s child through duration of the pregnancy & up to 6 weeks post-partum. (Eligible services are for pregnancy-related conditions)
  • Non-Indian member of the eligible Indian’s household for a public health hazard (decision made by Health Service Director and Clinical Director)
  • Non-Indian adopted, foster or stepchildren of an eligible Indian’s household up to 19 years of age

Purchased and Referred Care Services

Purchase and Referred Care (PRC) Services is intended to provide care away from a direct care facility. The patient must meet the direct care requirements and provide proof when requested. The PRC Program is not an entitlement program and a patient must meet the residence requirement which is a 25 mile radius from the Meskwaki Clinic to be deemed eligible for the Sac & Fox Tribe PRC Program.

Please contact Health Specialist, Natalie Wanatee, for questions about the PRC program.
