COVID-19 Resources

  • Indian Health Services – their COVID pages include FAQs, news, resources for tribes, and contacts
  • Elder Mental Health During COVID-19 – from Indian Health Services
  • COVID-19 Resources for Indian Country – information and resources from the National Congress of American Indians
  • National Indian Council on Aging – COVID resources page
  • Administration for Native Americans COVID-19 resource page
  • Reminder: Testing for COVID-19 is covered under MedicareMedicaid, and Marketplace plans. Moreover, both Medicare and Medicaid cover telehealth services even when the provider and patient are at home and not in a clinic or other health care setting. Note that telehealth services include preventive health screenings and mental health counseling and do not need to be related to COVID-19. Here’s a fact sheet with some basic info on COVID-19.
  • Public Service Announcements – Share these brief audio clips and videos that promote good self care of physical, emotional and mental health and resources available through Indian Health Services. These are available in 10 Native languages and English, and can be shared on your local radio station, website, and Facebook page.
  • Public Health Training – The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) created this interactive e-course to help strengthen public health infrastructure, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic, and improve delivery of essential services. The course is intended for tribal leaders and tribal advisory committee members.
