Each January, many people resolve to prioritize wellness. Enrollment in health insurance can help make that resolution a reality and protect families from high medical costs.

The current Marketplace open enrollment period runs through Saturday, January 15. While tribal citizens can enroll year-round, please encourage tribal family members who are not tribal citizens to visit HealthCare.gov and enroll in a Marketplace plan by that date.

Also, remind everyone that all Marketplace plans cover essential health benefits (PDF, 2.5 MB, 2 pp), such as vaccinations and cancer screenings. And let people know that special protections are available to American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) who enroll.
For more information on why AI/ANs should sign up for a health care coverage plan, download and share:
