Indian Health Care Improvement Act gains momentum in U.S. House

Legislation to renew and expand the Indian Health Care Improvement Act took a step forward in the U-S House today. It was approved by the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health and goes next to the full committee. The Indian Health Care Improvement Act has not been revamped since 1992, and that authorization lapsed six years ago.
