IHS Contract Health is NOT a health insurance plan, David. It is a community service you (or enrolled members, or decendants of enrolled members) are entitled to. A clinic. A health care system provided BY THE GOVERNMENT to PROVIDE health care on the reservation....on EVERY reservation and even some services off the reservation (SFalls has public health services, as does Rapid City.) This facility is similar to every clinic off the reservation...like through an Avera or Sanford name. Every person who seeks these services (on or off the res) MUST apply for primary care--whether it is offered through employment OR through government qualifications like CHIPS or Medicaid or Medicare. IHS is NOT "insurance". IHS does NOT accept you walking in the door without proof that you have OTHER coverage of some kind or PROOF that you were denied Medicaid. This was the system BEFORE ObamaCare. That being said, I don't care for Obama's plan either. But we are regulars at IHS---and we have insurance. I think the care me and my children recieve is outstanding, comprehensive, and given with care. Appreciate what you have been given.
