Kaiser Profile of American Indians and Alaska Natives and Their Health Coverage

Brief Profiles the Health Coverage and Status of American Indians and Alaska Native


Craig Palosky 
(202) 347-5270

The Kaiser Family Foundation today released a brief examining the health coverage, access to care and health status of American Indians and Alaska Natives across the country.  Although the U.S. government has an established responsibility through tribal agreements to provide health care services to members of federally recognized Indian tribes, many American Indians and Alaska Natives lack access to health care.  This brief gives an overview of some of the demographic factors that influence the health and insurance coverage of American Indians and Alaska Natives.  It examines the relatively high rates of chronic conditions experienced by American Indians and Alaska Natives compared to other racial and ethnic groups.  The brief also provides information about the Indian Health Service and health coverage and access to care for this population.

A Profile of American Indians and Alaska Natives and Their Health Coverage is available online.

The Kaiser Family Foundation is a non-profit private operating foundation, based in Menlo Park, California, dedicated to producing and communicating the best possible analysis and information on health issues.
