Treaty or Not? The Affordable Care Act & Indian Country - Ep. 2 "The Insurance Maze"

The Affordable Care Act includes incentives for people to buy health insurance coverage at a reduced rate or even free. So why would American Indians and Alaska Natives purchase insurance? Because there are a lot of benefits to doing so, including money for medical-related travel, or improved medicines. But first Native Americans need to sign up. And the Government Accountability Office said that will only happen if there is a major campaign to education people about their expanded coverage options. That means hiring more people, lots of people, to help Native Americans navigate through an insurance maze.
