Bill seeks random drug tests for Indian Health Service employees


Rep. Kristi Noem (R-South Dakota) made good this week on her promise to seek reforms at the troubled Indian Health Service.

On Wednesday, Noem introduced H.R.5406, the Helping Ensure Accountability, Leadership, and Trust in Tribal Healthcare Act (HEALTTH Act). The bill encourages more partnerships with tribes, addresses recruiting of heath professionals, updates the Purchased/Referred Care Program and calls for greater accountability at the IHS.
