Hoosiers join Indiana Farm Bureau because of health plans benefit
More than 35% of those applying to INFB Health Plans this year have reported joining INFB almost solely for the health plans, highlighting the need for more affordable, reliable health care in the ag community.
Carrie Summers, of the Benjamin M. Summers Family Farm in Knox County, became an INFB member because of the health plans benefit.
“The health plans offering was the reason we became members,” said Summers, who has a family plan with dental and vision benefits. "I am saving 50% on my premium now compared to what I was paying previously. I look forward to seeing the plans in the coming years so I can continue to recommend them to other farmers. It can break the bank to carry health insurance for the family so it’s nice there is a new option in our area.”

INFB Health Plans recently released a data map (shown above) highlighting the number of policyholders in each county. The data reveals that members across the state, in both urban and rural areas, are taking advantage of INFB Health Plans.
