Natives Americans Urged to Sign Up For Insurance Under New Law

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. Insurance enrollment helpers are encouraging Native Americans to sign up for coverage under the nation's new health care law.

Native Americans are exempt from the Affordable Care Act's requirement that people carry insurance.

But ``navigators'' tasked with helping people get insurance say the new law will give Native Americans better access to X-rays, mammograms, prescription drugs and trips to specialists not covered under Indian Health Service.

I thought First Nations people living on reservations already had free health care?

Doubling down on the American taxpayers. They already have Indian Health Services and now they’ll have BammyCare too. It don’t get no better than that.

Native American Nations should establish their own healthcare facilities on their lands independent of the federal government to offer all Americans and/or physicians an alternative to obamacare.

My thought also, I worked on a Indian Health Center for the Morongo Band of Mission Indians in Taxifornia quite a few years ago.

I still think we should make a list of
Obama-friendly insurance companies,
and try to send sick people there.

No. Medicare remains untouched by this monstrosity except it will go bankrupt sooner because Obama took $500 billion from the “trust fund” to pay for this monstrosity.

Native Americans have had “free” government health care for years. That’s why their death rate is so high.

Aren't the Morongos the group which owns the fabulous hotel/casino/truck stop resort on I-10 just 15 miles or so west of Palm Springs?

Cheapest gas for miles around too. Everybody stops there.

Next thing you know, they will be setting up a cash clinic for other escapees from ObaMaoCare.

Where has Obama been for the past 5 years re the Indian Health Service? I saw him have a major powwow at the White House with the leaders of many tribes he was courting for votes.

Looks like the Bureau of Indian Affairs/H&HS didn’t deliver much, did they?

Take they votes and then screw them, just like the white man did for so long, only this time it’s a black man doing it (and no protests). Wonder why?
