Open enrollment is now over for millions of Americans including American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) and it is now tax season! Members of federally recognized Tribes have a special monthly enrollment period and they can enroll in health coverage throughout the year. They can also use their Indian Health Service facility as their primary care provider. IHS is not considered Health Insurance so to avoid paying the Shared Responsibility Payment for not holding minimum essential coverage AI/AN’S must file an exemption! Form 8965, found at must be included. Visit for more information.

It is still important for AI/AN individuals and families to learn about their insurance options and get covered. Not only do the individuals benefit from insurance but it also helps Indian Health Service facilities, Tribal 638 and urban clinics as well. Through third party billing, these resources become more available to everyone because those Purchased and Referred Care dollars go right back into the facilities.

The Housing Department is requesting that all Tribal Members update information for their housing client file. We are requesting current income verification; this is all earned and unearned income from a job or from any public assistance program like AFDC, social security, etc. In addition, copies of social security cards for everyone in the household will be needed. If you have already turned these in, only submit a copy of any new additions to the household. If you have had any changes in living conditions such as overcrowding, substandard housing, or even improved living conditions, please contact us for a new housing application, as this will affect your point score and placement on the waiting lists. Applications with out-of-date information will be considered inactive and may be taken off the program waiting lists. Thank you for your participation in our efforts to keep our files current. If you have any questions, please contact us at the information below.
