US Supreme Court Upholds Indian Health Law and Larger Obama Health Law

indiancountry:

WASHINGTON – In a major victory for the Obama administration, the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 has survived under the taxing power of the Congress, according to a widely anticipated decision handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court on June 28. Also surviving is the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (IHCIA), which was part of the larger law and paved the way to permanently reauthorizing some important federal and tribal Indian health-related programs and funding pathways.

Interesting, how many of you knew that the Indian Health Care Improvement Act was hidden inside of the Affordable Health Care Act?
