About Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium

Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC), is a medical, dental, vision and mental health organization serving the communities and villages of Southeast Alaska. SEARHC is a non-profit tribal health consortium of 18 Native communities which serves the health interests of the Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian people, and other Alaska Native people of Southeast Alaska. It is one of the oldest and largest Native-run health organizations in the United States. Each of the eighteen-member Board of Directors is elected by and represents one of the village tribal organizations. The board supervises the Chief Executive Officer of the Consortium. The Board typically alternates bi-monthly meetings between Juneau and Sitka, but will occasionally convene in a smaller village. SEARHC is funded by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, various grant sources, and through 3rd party billing. Services are available to eligible Alaska Native and American Indians; eligibility is typically based upon Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood or other legal documentation. Services financed by the entities, such as Health Resources and Services Administration or United States Department of Veterans Affairs, may provided for all residents of the region.
