Northern Arapaho Tribe Pursues Self-Funded Health Insurance

The Northern Arapaho Tribe has announced it will no longer use the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program but instead will self-insure tribal employees in hopes of moving toward greater tribal sovereignty. Last year, the tribe took over the management of their health clinics, too.

Matt Silverstein is CEO of First Nation Health Insurance, the company that would help set up the program. He said they're already serving the Eastern Shoshone and that tribe has self-insured its members for several years. He said many tribes are moving toward self-insuring.
