With the Jan. 1 deadline to sign up for healthcare looming over the nation, Toiyabe Indian Health Project staff is providing help and getting training to help Native American community members understand where they fit into the Affordable Care Act.
Chief Executive Officer David Lent said that his Contract Healthcare Department staff is now providing tribal members with ACA information as well as helping them understand how the Covered California program can benefit them and their clinic.
According to, “Covered California is a new, easy-to-use market place,” intended to help people find financial assistance to make coverage more affordable and compare and choose coverage that fits their needs and budgets. “By law, your coverage can’t be dropped or denied even if you have a pre-existing medical condition or get sick,” states the site.
