“The Administration for Native Americans (ANA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have formed a collaboration to promote good health outcomes and provide outreach and training related to Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and insurance policies available through the Health Insurance Marketplace (HIM). ANA and CMS aspire to promote awareness of all the benefits and rights of healthcare reform and earlier laws and regulations that accrue to AI/AN persons/grantees who receive benefits from the Administration of Children and Families.”
Based on Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution the Federal Government has an obligation to promote healthy American Indian and Alaska Native people, communities, and cultures and to honor and protect the inherent sovereign rights of Tribes.
Healthy Tribes provides resources for American Indian and Alaskan Native health insurance.
If you enroll in a health insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace, you can still get (or keep getting) services from the Indian Health Service, tribal health programs, or urban Indian health programs.
To get special Marketplace protections, you'll need to provide a copy of a document issued by a federally recognized tribe that shows membership in that tribe. If you're applying for Marketplace coverage, in addition to basic information about household size and income, you’ll need to provide information about income from Indian trust land, natural resources, and items of cultural significance. This income won’t be counted for Medicaid or CHIP eligibility, but may be counted for Marketplace purposes.
