Using Insurance and the Marketplace

Using Insurance and the Marketplace

Insurance can be a very confusing topic, and many American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) may not realize that they are eligible for special benefits. Find out about enrollment options through the Marketplace and why health insurance matters in Indian Country. This page includes flyers and fact sheets, brochures, public service announcements (PSAs), and videos on a variety of culturally specific topics.

PSAs, Ads, and Radio Spots

Public service announcements (PSAs) and radio spots provide more information on the ACA and how it benefits tribal communities. PSAs and radio spots are available in English and 10 Native languages on the Outreach & Education Native Language PSA Archive.
