“It belongs to you.”

We believe our healthcare services belong to the people—a generational gift. EBCI Tribal Option is a steward of that inheritance, charged with safeguarding it and providing it to patients/members when and how they need it.

EBCI Tribal Option is here to support you, the member, and your family in achieving your health goals. We recognize that the overall well-being of our members is dependent upon much more than just health. Where a person physically and socially lives, learns, works, and plays all have a tremendous impact on your quality of life. To assist our members in achieving ᏙᎯ “To-hi,” a state of peace and balance, we can connect you to local resources. Below are links to some of the local tribal resources:
