In this episode, podcast hosts Levi Rickert and Kristen Bitsuie welcome guest Adam Archuleta, who has over 30 years of experience working for the Department of Health & Human Services Indian Health Service agency.  Together, they talk about Medicare and why it is essential to Tribes and their citizens. Medicare, unlike Medicaid, is federally funded health insurance for people 65 and older. We also discuss related topics such as Hospital insurance, medical insurance, drug coverage, and Medicare Advantage.
