Indian Health Care Improvement Act

The Indian Health Care Improvement Act (IHCIA) is the cornerstone legal authority for the provision of health care to American Indians and Alaska Natives. The IHCIA of 1976 had not been renewed since 2000 when President Obama signed the bill on March 23, 2010, as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The 2010 renewal made IHCIA permanent and provided funding for modernizing services, developing mobile health care, providing mental health counseling, and providing long-term in home or community care. 

The ACA was upheld as consititutional through Congress' taxing power in 2012. IHCIA, as part of the broader ACA, survived as well. Read about the Supreme Court's ruling here.
