In this episode, podcast hosts Levi Rickert and Kristen Bitsuie welcome guest Adam Archuleta, who has over 30 years of experience working for the Department of Health & Human Services Indian Health Service agency.  Together, they talk about Medicare and why it is essential to Tribes and their citizens.
