Bultje says they have to be trained before they can help people begin the sign up process…

The sign up for the new health insurance exchanges begins on October first. Bultje says it will be tight, but they plan to be ready…

The four regional agencies will split three hundred thirty six thousand dollars, while the Great Plains Tribal Chairmen’s Health Board will receive two hundred sixty four thousand dollars.
