Join NIHB and Tribal leaders across Indian Country for the Affordable Care Act National Tribal Day of Action. Today, all American Indians and Alaska Natives are encouraged to learn more about the health insurance options available under the Affordable Care Act. Many Indian Health Service (IHS), Tribal and urban Indian clinics will also be hosting outreach, education and enrollment events. Be sure to tell your family, friends and community members about the Affordable Care Act so that everyone is afforded the opportunity to improve their health.
