SEARHC’s Patient Health Benefits program provides free help to Southeast Alaskans. If you need a helping hand with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplace at Healthcare.gov, Medicare, Medicaid, the Tribally Sponsored Program or Veteran’s Benefits we can assist you. We will also help you with filing tribal, hardship, and affordability exemptions.

If you have not signed up for coverage, our team can help find the right fit for you and your family. Alaska Native and American Indians are covered by the Indian Health Service for health care, however, getting additional coverage expands your options and services.
