Treaty or Not? The Affordable Care Act & Indian Country - Ep. 3 "Competition"

There is not a lot of competition in health care, especially for American Indians and Alaska Natives who live on a reservation or in a native village. The one choice for health care is often the federal Indian Health Service or perhaps a locally-managed tribal or nonprofit clinic. But the Affordable Care Act changes that. Once you have an insurance card from a Marketplace Exchange or Medicaid ... then you have a choice. You can go to any doctor, including those in the Indian health system.That means clinics that serve American Indians and Alaska Natives will have to be run like a business instead of a government agency.
