Much work to be done on the IHS Page[edit]

Sadly, there is NOT enough accurate information on this page. The Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service draws military benefits and during times of war as authorized by executive order can be a military service, but are not militarized, but rather one of the seven uniformed services of the United States. The Commissioned Corps of the USPHS is the uniformed component of the Department of Health & Human Services.

Also, there is not enough coverage of Title I and Title V PL 93-638, where Tribes have the authority to take over programs and services of IHS and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.140.162.30 (talk) 01:37, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Sounds interesting. Please add it. Ando228 (talk) 15:20, 15 January 2008 (UTC)


Why are so many urban Indians not eligible under IHS? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.162.41.81 (talk) 21:12, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Moved 2nd Paragraph To New Section[edit]

I moved the 2nd paragraph to a new section at the bottom, since I thought the top section should just provide the overall summary of what the IHS is, as with most Wikipedia articles.

Sorry if I don't respond in a long time. I rarely edit Wikipedia, but I felt like this should be edited to avoid giving undue weight to this particular report when most people are looking for a general overview of the topic. --Evan Donovan (talk) 15:22, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
