The final version of the IHP 2011 assessment has been released.

Members perceive that this community-based health plan demonstrates both health and financial benefits to its members. Perceived benefits of the plan included an improved ability to build sustainability through prolonging land ownership, improving ability to send children to school, and reducing household financial stress brought on by the need to pay for unplanned health services.

Community based health plans may contribute to the financial health of the larger community as well. However, further study is needed to explore a complete picture of the economic impact of health plans, such the impact on the local economy of rural communities.
