ACA Update

What you need to know about the Affordable Care Act Exemption

as an American Indian/Alaskan Native!

Under the Affordable Care Act, every individual needs to have health coverage or make a payment on their federal income tax return known as the “shared responsibility payment”.

However, American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) and other people who are eligible for services through the Indian Health Service, tribal programs, or urban Indian programs (like the spouse or child of an eligible AI/AN) don’t have to pay the “shared responsibility payment”. This is called an exemption.

If you have health insurance through your employer or have health care through a government sponsored program such as Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, Veterans Affairs or TRICARE, there is nothing you need to do—you are covered.

How does the exemption work for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs)?

Members of federally recognized tribes may apply for an exemption through the Marketplace or handle it on their federal tax return for the 2014 year in when they file in 2015. A copy of the Marketplace form can be accessed at

AI/ANs who aren’t members of federally recognized tribes, but who are eligible for services from the Indian Health Service, tribal programs, or urban Indian programs (known as I/T/Us), must apply for an exemption through theMarketplace. They’ll need to verify their AI/AN status or eligibility for services through an I/T/U.

Please note, you may use one application per tax household when you apply for the exemption.

What you will need to apply for exemption:

·         Documents showing tribal membership or eligibility for services from the Indian Health Service, a tribal health care provider, or an urban Indian health care provider (I/T/Us).

·      Social Security numbers (SSNs), if you have them.

·      Information about people in your tax household.

If you get this exemption:

·      You will receive an Exemption Certificate Number that you’ll put on your federal income tax return.

·      You can keep the Exemption Certificate Number for future years without submitting another application if your membership or eligibility for services from an Indian health care provider remains unchanged.

Where can you get help with the application?

·      Online at:

·      By phone: Call the Health Insurance Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.

·      In person: There may be counselors in your area who can help. Visit or call 1-800-318-2596 for more information.

Being exempt from the “shared responsibility payment” doesn’t prevent you from enrolling in a Marketplace health plan, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). These options are still available to you. You might qualify for certain protections under Medicaid or CHIP, or for lower costs on monthly premiums and no out-of-pocket costs on private insurance through the Marketplace.

Corporate Capabilities



Bowman Performance Consulting (BPC) began offering professional consulting, scientific research, and evaluation services in 2001.  BPC’s main office is located in Shawano with several regional offices throughout the state.  BPC provides culturally responsive and contextually applicable services to hundreds of national clientele across multijurisdictional contexts: public, private, non-profit and tribal sectors.  BPC’s clients and projects also span many interdisciplinary areas:  health, human services, education, governance, economic development, and justice.

BPC develops projects, provides training/technical assistance, and designs studies that not only complete the scope of work on time and within budget, but engages clients in a meaningful way so the skills, capacities, and resources are increased as an intentional result of BPC working with you.  When we say that, “BPC works with you and not on you” we truly mean it!  Our job is not done unless the client is more equipped and empowered to do the job after BPC leaves the job site.  As a client of BPC you can expect to be authentically engaged, thinking critically, and making decisions based on measurable targets and data.

WHAT WE SELL:  BPC services fall under four main categories:   research, development, implementation, and evaluation:

  1. Research services involves studies to document baseline information; test ideas, programs, or theories; and/or to find innovative solutions to problems.  Examples:  feasibility studies, policy studies, workforce studies, literature reviews, customer service studies, or market studies/analysis.
  2. Development services include creation of new policies, programs, organizational, or systemic processes that support long-range efforts by the organization.  Examples:  professional development for staff; board or leadership training; policy and handbook development; creation of a strategic plan; or development of funding proposals. 
  3. Implementation services are better known as technical assistance and these services help the client to fully develop ideas, programming, or organizational structures.  Examples include:  implementation support for new grants or programs; monitoring and providing feedback on new policy/procedural implementation; working on certifications/accreditations; or providing support for implementation of a new strategic plan or workforce practice learned through trainings.
  4. Evaluation services help the client understand the short and long-term impacts by developing common performance metrics and indicators so changes in the human, program, organizational, or systems are documented.  Data is generated for intended changes to document baselines and so short-term impacts are noted and supports or hindrances for changes are known (process/implementation data).  Trend data is gathered over a longer time frame to know the annual or longitudinal (multiple year) impacts of programs, policies, procedures, or other organizational/systemic strategies (outcome data).  Examples include:  needs assessments; external grant evaluations; setting up monitoring/performance systems; or data retreats using evaluation or research data generated by the client and/or BPC to make data-driven and strategic decisions about programming, workforce, or organizational initiatives.

WHO WE SELL TO:  BPC provides culturally responsive and contextually applicable services to the public, private, non-profit, and Tribal sectors.  Our primary target markets are the educational, academic, economic development, health, and Native American communities.  We work in a “multi-jurisdictional” manner to support collaborative projects that enrich all who participate.  Often these customers work together on joint projects but have lowered capacity, working knowledge, practical experiences, and/or sensitivity to the culture, context, or community needs that the projects are being implemented into.  BPC serves to work “with” clients and not “on” them in order to build authentic partnerships and active participants in the project.  Through grant funded projects (public and non-profit sources); government sponsored initiatives (Public and Tribal Governments); and private sector partnerships BPC provides services where these target markets all meet by building capacity, strengthening coalitions, and supporting effective and evidence or research based programming.  Uniquely, BPC’s multijurisdictional projects and services have been carried out through projects in the disciplines of:  health, education, human services, justice, economic development, transportation, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). BPC’s value-added client services allow the greatest opportunity for success so positive changes can be institutionalized and targeted resources are leveraged and sustained after the project ends.

FINANCIAL SUMMARY:  BPC is an award winning and nationally credentialed professional service organization that generates revenue through services on a fee-per-client basis not contingency.  Seeking long-term projects (3 to 5 years), BPC has had organizational stability since 2001 through multi-year grant evaluations, research projects, and technical assistance/development projects to sustain, expand, and deepen our service offerings to a national clientele.  Since 2001, our annual organizational revenues have ranged from $450,000 to $900,000 that has been generated by 8-10 multi-year projects (on average).  BPC tracks how our projects are awarded and over 85% our awards come not by competitive bids but rather by repeat clients and/or through word-of-mouth based on our high quality, on time, within budget, and valued added services.  Yes, BPC is a vendor but we’ve grown to have a reputation of being a partner for collaborative and sustained improvement efforts.  BPC’s reputation has resulted in many state, national, and Tribal awards as well as appointments to boards, committees, and task force groups across the country.  Our high quality services, strong business operations, and consistent performance over the years have helped to secure certifications and credentials in the academic and business community.  Certifications include:  Woman-owned Business Enterprise, Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, Minority-owned Business Enterprise, What Works Clearinghouse/U.S. Department of Education Scientific Evaluator, Culturally/Contextually Responsive and Trained Evaluator, Native American / TERO Certified Firm, and former 8a certified organization.  A full list of BPC’s certifications and credentials can be found at

SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR & PHILANTHROPIC SUPPORT:  Because BPC is a small business, our efforts for strategic partnering, leveraging resources, and running a lean business is critical to our organizational success and financial health.  BPC is a social entrepreneurial organization that wants to leverage our resources (time, money, supplies, etc.) to contribute to the communities we work in and the causes near and dear to our hearts.  Therefore beyond traditional prime or sub-contracting, BPC contributes via pro bono work with colleagues and pattering organizations on task forces, committees, boards, and through presenting/publishing. Additionally BPC volunteers in and outside of the Shawano, WI community and provides sponsorship through events that are important to BPC’s mission.  Examples of BPC’s volunteerism and philanthropy include:  Domestic Abuse Food & Clothes Drives, Bras for the Cause (Breast Cancer Awareness), Melanoma Awareness Sponsorship, Memorial Bike Rides (Ovarian & Prostrate Cancer), Memorial Golf Tournaments, sponsoring local businesses/entrepreneurs in Chambers of Commerce or U.S. Small Business Administration training events, Coats/Food for Children Drives (for at-risk and low socio-economic children/families), and providing Native American, urban, and rural student scholarships for college, travel abroad, and/or work internship experiences.
