Affordable Care Act (ACA) Campaign in Indian Country: Reaching Millions

The Center is joining the effort to help spread the word about an education campaign for Native youth, parents, and all of Indian Country to better understand the new health care options that will be available through the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Please read below for more details!

Starting this fall, the Affordable Care
Act (ACA) and Indian Health Care Improvement Act are creating new opportunities
for American Indians and Alaska Natives to enroll in high-quality, affordable health
insurance. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is conducting
an outreach and education campaign to inform Indian Country audiences about
free or low-cost health care coverage options that may be available. Here are
few highlights of this massive national outreach effort:

·        
More
than 325 billboards
are up in Arizona, California, New
Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Washington

·        
Posters,
brochures, and other educational materials
have been sent
to tribes, tribal clinics, and urban health clinics

·        
Radio
public service announcements (PSAs)
are being aired on
many stations

 

By the end of August, these materials
will be seen or heard over a hundred
million times!

American Indians and Alaska Natives can
find more about the Health Insurance Marketplace and enrollment opportunities
at
www.Healthcare.gov/tribal.  If you have questions about these outreach
and education materials, or about new health care options available in your
state or community, please contact the CMS Tribal Affairs Group at
