Indian Health Care Bill Moves to Senate

The US Senate Indian Affairs Committee approved reauthorizing the Indian Health Care Improvement Act on Thursday, sending the bill to the full Senate for consideration. The bill would permanently continue the Community Health Aid Program in Alaska.  It would also reauthorize the dental health aid program and would expand long-term services like assisted living and home care for elders.
