Montana offers coverage for reproductive health services for low-income women through its Medicaid expansion program 1 and its Plan First family planning Medicaid waiver. These programs have had a ificant impact in a community with high unemployment and poverty rates Figure 1 and where stark health disparities between the white and Native American populations persist. Although Montana maintains many policies that protect access and coverage for reproductive health services, Crow women living on the reservation face sociodemographic, systemic, and cultural barriers that prevent many from readily accessing services.

In many parts of the reservation, Ladies seeking sex Jordan Montana nearest health care provider is an hour drive away; yet, transportation is not readily available in this low-income, rural community, which is federally-deated as medically underserved and as a health professional shortage area. IHS operates a hospital and two health clinics on the reservation, but a legacy of mistrust of IHS, long wait times, and confidentiality concerns prevent some Crow women from using their services.

Some of these themes, particularly concerns about confidentiality, are common in small, rural communities across the country, and are not limited to the Crow reservation. While IHS offers a wide range of services including behavioral health, obstetrics and gynecology Ob-Gyndental care, and surgery, pregnant women must transfer to Billings for labor and delivery. Traditional and religious beliefs prevent many Crow women from talking openly about sexual health, which may contribute to high rates of sexually transmitted infections STIs and teen pregnancy, and many consider abortion taboo or do not consider it an option when faced with an unplanned or unintended pregnancy.

This case study examines access to reproductive health services for low-income residents of the Crow reservation, Montana.

It is based on semi-structured interviews conducted June—July by staff of KFF and Health Management Associates HMA with a range of local safety net clinicians and clinic directors, social service and community-based organizations, researchers, and health care advocates. We Ladies seeking sex Jordan Montana conducted a focus group with low-income women. Interviewees were asked about a wide range of topics that shape access to and use of reproductive health care services in their community, including availability of family planning and maternity services, provider supply and distribution, scope of sex education, abortion restrictions, and the impact of state and federal health financing and coverage policies locally.

Medicaid expansion has played a ificant role in improving coverage rates for Native Americans in Montana, which has allowed Crow tribal members to access a broader set of services and providers beyond those available at IHS. The additional funding provided through the expansion program has also allowed IHS Service Units to expand their scope of services, a move that is essential to addressing the tremendous disparities in health for native women of reproductive age.

Nationwide, IHS services are administered through 12 area offices and IHS and tribally managed service units, and 41 urban Indian health programs including hospitals, health stations, and clinics. As of AprilIHS served 2. Because IHS-funded services are paid in full by the federal program, focus group participants expressed that out-of-pocket cost is not an issue for them despite high levels of poverty on the reservation.

However, IHS staff did discuss that overall funding is often limited. As ofan additional 15, Native Americans gained Medicaid coverage through the expansion program in Montana. Expanded Medicaid coverage has allowed Native Americans throughout the state to seek a broader range of services from any provider that accepts Medicaid, allowing them more flexibility and choice in their provider and the care they receive.

As a result, Native Americans, including Crow tribal members, now have greater access to reproductive health care, including fertility treatment, which is not provided within the IHS system. We have seen a huge increase in patients coming to our clinic now.

A shortage of providers on the reservation and lack of transportation are barriers to accessing care in a timely manner. Many women seek care at one of the non-IHS clinics off the reservation in nearby Hardin or farther away in Billings. Provider recruitment and retention is a key challenge both on and off the Crow reservation. Interviewees reported a ificant staffing shortage at the Crow Indian Health Service, not only in obstetrics and gynecology, but also in behavioral health and nursing.

IHS is in the process of building a housing unit for staff across from the hospital, which they hope will draw more providers to work there. Planned Parenthood in Billings also reported staffing challenges due to competition with other health care providers in the area.

Staffing shortages mean the Planned Parenthood clinic must shorten their hours, limiting availability for working women who can often only come in the evening and on the weekends. Publicly-funded contraceptive services are available on the Crow reservation, but some women experience barriers to obtaining timely services. The Crow-Northern Cheyenne Hospital offers a broad range of services including behavioral health, Ob-Gyn, dental care, and surgery.

Sterilization services are not provided, but IHS clinicians said they will refer patients seeking sterilization to providers in Billings. While some providers are able to see patients on the same day the appointment is made, some interviewees noted they double and triple book appointments to for no-shows.

Several focus group participants reported experiencing long waiting room times. There are several other key health care providers serving the Crow population. In addition, the Billings Urban Indian Health and Wellness Center, approximately 60 miles away in Billings, operates as part of the federal Urban Indian Health Program as a nonprofit, full-service medical clinic.

They provide low- and no-cost health services including oral contraceptives, STI testing and treatment, and free transportation to and from the Crow-Northern Cheyenne Hospital and Pryor Health Station. The Yellowstone County Health Department and multiple primary and specialty care providers are also in Billings, in addition to two Planned Parenthood clinics offering the full range of contraceptive options and abortion services. Subsequent follow up calls with Title X providers found that this requirement has been challenging, and on August 19,Planned Parenthood formally withdrew from the Title X program nationally following implementation of the rule.

Crow women may go to Crow-Northern Cheyenne Hospital for prenatal care, but the hospital does not offer labor and delivery services. However, the hospital is not approved for labor and delivery services, so women living on the reservation are referred to Billings after 30 weeks gestation, which can be more than an hour drive away. Several focus group participants shared stories of women they knew who had experienced pregnancy loss or preterm births because they were not able to detect a problem with the pregnancy early enough.

Although the Crow-Northern Cheyenne Hospital did not have an ultrasound technician at the time of the site visit, they have since hired someone for this position. Historically, midwifery was a common practice within the Crow tribe 2but none of the focus group participants had used a midwife. One interviewee noted that St. Vincent in Billings has an active midwifery clinic and provides prenatal care to many women in the area.

The hospital employs one female midwife who is available for family planning services and has plans to hire another. Transportation is a ificant barrier for women traveling for prenatal or pregnancy-related services. Some focus group participants noted they try to use the Crow Transit bus, but it leaves Crow Agency the seat of Ladies seeking sex Jordan Montana reservation once a day at am and is reportedly unreliable.

In addition, many areas of the reservation are over an hour away from Crow Agency. Medicaid will pay for transportation costs for pregnancy care, but that is of little use if reliable transportation is unavailable. One focus group participant said she has had to hitchhike to and from Billings to get to her health care appointments. Several statewide and Crow-specific maternal health programs have existed in the past. The state used to administer the Montana Initiative for the Abatement of Infant Mortality MIAMI Project to increase access to prenatal, delivery, and postpartum care for high-risk pregnant women and their infants.

Additionally, the Crow Healthy Mothers and Healthy Babies program ly provided outreach and education to pregnant women. Recently, the Montana Healthcare Foundation has supported Native American perinatal behavioral health program development efforts statewide, but it is unknown how this will impact the Crow tribe.

BVHC provides fully-integrated care for pregnant women including access to substance use treatment with on-site behavioral health providers. Interviewees reported high rates of substance use among youth and adults on the reservation. Focus group participants explained that children whose parents have substance use disorders SUD are often sent into foster care out of state, and interviewees said that grandmothers often step in to raise young grandchildren in the absence of parents who are dealing with addiction.

The clinic conducts outreach and screening, performs a warm handoff to internal providers for treatment, and offers Medication-Assisted Treatment MAT for those with opioid use disorders. Messengers for Health, a health outreach and education program on the Crow reservation, also teaches substance use prevention to youth within the schools.

Still, interviewees reported ificant stigma around substance use during pregnancy. In Januarythe Big Horn County Attorney announced he would seek to jail pregnant women found to be using drugs or alcohol. In response to strong backlash, the attorney has backed away from the policy although has not yet changed it as of October and has been participating in workgroups about how to provide holistic care to those with SUD. The full range of contraceptive methods are available at IHS; however, contraception use is reportedly low, particularly among teens, contributing to the Crow tribe having the highest teen pregnancy rate in Montana.

Lack of transportation, confidentiality concerns, cultural beliefs, lack of awareness, and historical mistrust of health care providers among the Crow population are barriers to care. Provider shortages, traditional beliefs, and a lack of health literacy all contribute to the higher rates of teen pregnancy among Crow youth.

The overall Montana teen birth rate is 26 births per 1, Big Horn Countywhere Crow reservation is located, is ranked highest in the state for teen births, at 85 births per 1, Contraceptive care for low-income women is available at IHS and various providers in Hardin and Billings. However, interviewees explained that babies are viewed as a blessing in many traditional families, even for teens, and given this perspective, family planning is not always prioritized.

Low health literacy was also reported as a limitation to contraceptive use. A legacy of forced sterilization and experimentation, confidentiality concerns, and turnover at the IHS administration has led to a distrust of IHS and other western providers. Several interviewees discussed the lasting impact the history of nonconsensual research and forced sterilization has had on the Crow tribe. Native American women, 3 including Crow women, 45 were sterilized without their consent by U.

Confidentiality concerns are also a ificant barrier to family planning and STI testing services on the reservation, as is common in many small communities. Vincent is the only religious health system in Billings, and in practice, it has few restrictions on contraception, although it recently stopped performing tubal ligation. There are two major health systems in the area, St. However, St. Vincent stopped providing tubal ligation in Juneand interviewees reported that St. Vincent providers often refer to Planned Parenthood for long-acting reversible contraception LARCsuch as IUDs and implants, because of their own beliefs or they lack experience due to low volume.

Several focus group participants noted they typically do not go to St. Vincent for contraception simply because Billings Clinic, the other major hospital in the area, is closer to the reservation. Sex education is mostly discussed informally in the home, with intermittent efforts to provide formal education in schools.

Sex education on the Crow reservation is influenced by strong cultural and gender roles within the Crow tribe. As some interviewees described it, Crow families are closely knit, and the tribe has a tradition of matrilineal kinship. Older women, especially, adhere to strong beliefs in modesty and treat topics about sexuality, family planning and abortion as taboo. Crow girls often look to their grandmothers for education on these issues. This is ificant given many grandmothers are raising their grandchildren.

However, family planning is not typically prioritized, and focus group participants said many girls and young women do not know where to get contraception. Two focus group participants shared they each had friends who became pregnant at 11 and 14 years old, respectively. Abortion was not considered an option for either, and someone else raised the babies for them. Outside of the family, several school-based sex education programs exist but are not adopted consistently.

Messengers for Ladies seeking sex Jordan Montana was invited into schools on the reservation by Crow women in the community to educate girls from 5 th to 12 th grade about sexual risk factors for cervical cancer using a culturally competent curriculum. Topics reflected cultural values and covered self-respect, peer pressure, substance use, and discussions about what students have heard about sex from their families. Over the years, adoption of this program has varied depending on level of support from the Crow administration.

Planned Parenthood in Billings employed a Health Educator who is Native American and has worked with several schools in Ladies seeking sex Jordan Montana around the Crow reservation. In one town, she was only allowed to work with female students due to Crow cultural norms. However, in another community, both boys and girls participated. Interviewees added that there appears to be more openness to this type of education as staff gets younger and more aware of these issues, particularly as they relate to substance use.
