Episode 1 - Medicare & Medicaid in Indian Country

This season, we are going to talk about the role that Medicare and Medicaid play in Indian Country and why that matters to tribes and tribal citizens. We plan to explain what Medicare and Medicaid are … how they work in Indian Country … and how using them can help tribes expand care for their tribal citizens. Podcast host Levi Rickert is joined by Kristen Bitsuie from the National Indian Health Board for a straightforward, jargon-free discussion in this first episode of the six-episode podcast series.
