Dorothy Dupree

Dorothy Dupree, area director for Indian Health Services in Billings, speaks at a community meeting in May at the Department of Interior building to address questions relating to the closure of the Indian Health Board of Billings. 

The Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders office is offering help to individuals and families who need health insurance after the Indian Health Board of Billings unexpectedly closed and left patients without care last month. 

From 1 to 5 p.m. on June 27 members of federally recognized tribes and descendants seeking assistance enrolling in healthcare insurance can visit the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders offices for free, one-on-one help. 

Patients who lost care with the closure of the Indian Health Board may be eligible to enroll in programs through the Affordable Care Act.

Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders offices are at 711 Central Ave. in Billings. For questions or to set up an appointment, contact Marguerite Jodry at 406-869-5045.
