AFFORDABLE CARE ACT EVENT SUCCESSFUL!
The speakers from IHS, NCUIH, and NIHB, and all involved in putting our ACA event together may wonder how the Native American Indian community received their presentations. Well, we got some great feed back and reviews! Everyone thought the event was a huge success and was greatly appreciated.
Each speaker presented the material in a way that everyone could understand. We want to tell you how much we enjoyed your presentation on Feb. 5, 2015. Your talk gave a great boost to our efforts to sign up more people to the ACA.
On behalf of the Native American Health Coalition and the Native American Indian Community, thank you for a memorable and effective presentation and we hope you will visit Houston again.
We would like to also acknowledge the United Way for accommodating our every needs with expediency and grace. Thank you United Way and we look forward to our next event with you.
Just wanted to add that it was stressed that if you already have insurance and are a State Recognized Tribe, you should apply for exemption. If you are State Recognized you have just a few days left, as Feb. 15, 2015 is the deadline and is just around the corner.
The video below does not mention Native American Indians, however it is very informative if you are still wondering what the Affordable Care Act is.
