Last year, the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare required that all Americans have health insurance coverage. While American Indians and Alaska Natives are exempt from the shared responsibility payment, there has been a push to sign up Natives for health insurance. This year’s deadline is approaching. Today we check in on whether people across Native America are signing up for insurance. Our guests can answer your questions about health insurance. Have you signed up for insurance under Obamacare? Why or why not?
