SRPMIC Explores Options to Address Future of Healthcare for Its People
Au-Authm Action News

Editor’s Note: This article is a compilation of information obtained while attending a few of the meetings on healthcare options and opportunities being considered by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community for its members.

The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC) has been exploring, reviewing and analyzing a wide range of options and opportunities to address the growing healthcare needs of its people and to plan for a sustainable future for the tribal Community. Health and wellness of the Community is extremely important, and some of the points to be considered include impacts associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the governmental budget issues associated with Indian Health Service (IHS) funding, and the health disparities of Native Americans, which are disproportionally higher than other populations, are focal points to be considered in addressing health care for SRPMIC.
