Senate passes bill on Indian healthcare

AP/Yahoo News, February 26, 2008
New legislation passed by the Senate would provide American Indians with better access to healthcare services. The bill would boost programs at the federally funded Indian Health Service, prompt new construction and modernization of health clinics on reservations, and attempt to recruit more Indians into health professions. It also would increase tribal access to Medicare and Medicaid.
