National Affordable Care Act Tribal Day of Action is on Monday, March 24, 2014

The National Affordable Care Act Day of Action is a call to all American Indians and Alaska Natives to find out about the health insurance benefits and protections available through the Marketplace. Enrollment events will be taking place on Monday March 24th and throughout the week in AI/AN communities or at I.H.S., tribal and urban Indian clinics.

If you can’t make an enrollment event, you may connect with the Marketplace in your State through healthcare.gov, or find other local in-person assistance by visiting localhelp/healthcare.gov.

If your AI/AN community is hosting an enrollment event on Monday, March 24th or during the week, let us know by emailing lbird@ncai.org or by posting details on your event and pictures to Facebook/Tribalhealthcare or Twitter @Tribalhlthcare
