BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota officials are launching a video campaign on an exclusive Native American TV network to talk about health care benefits.

The state Insurance Department and Indian Affairs Commission are combining on the video, which will be shown on the GoodHealthTV network. The network focuses on health care issues on reservations.

Officials say the campaign is meant to encourage Native Americans to access Medicare and affordable prescription drug benefits, which are available regardless of income or whether people are receiving Indian Health Service assistance.

Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm and Indian Affairs Commissioner Scott Davis appear in the videos, which will begin airing this month.
