WASHINGTON – According to the Indian Health Service, American Indian and Alaska Natives who are citizens of federally recognized tribes and Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act Corporation shareholders can apply for health care coverage in Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program or the Marketplace any time of the year.

American Indians, Alaska Natives and people eligible for services through IHS, tribal or urban Indian health programs may claim an exemption from the tax penalty for not maintaining health care coverage throughout the tax year. One may do so by completing IRS Form 8965 when filing a federal income tax return.
