Your Home for Quality Health Care
The Indian Health Board (IHB) of Minneapolis was incorporated in 1971 to provide for the health needs of the American Indian community living in Minneapolis. IHB provides medical and dental care and counseling services to more than 7,000 patients each year in its offices at 1315 East 24th Street in the heart of Minneapolis’ Phillips neighborhood.
Through special funding sources, quality health care services and programs are available to all patients with or without health insurance. To ensure services are accessible to all, a sliding fee scale is offered to private pay patients based on their income level. A drug discount program also is available to qualifying IHB patients with discounts up to 50 percent.
