Washington, D.C.

The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) is pleased to host two special events in honor of the historic passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – the health reform legislation that included the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (IHCIA). Over the past decade, Tribes have worked endlessly to reauthorize the IHCIA in order to expand, improve, and modernize the health delivery and services in tribal communities. Many individuals have dedicated their time, efforts, and work towards the passage of the IHCIA to improve the lives of American Indians and Alaska Natives.
