Indiana Farm Bureau says the health care coverage plans they’ve been offering members for more than three years helped fill a huge need.

Megan Ritter with Indiana Farm Bureau says they did about 18 months of research before offering their health plans, and found farmers needed affordable options. “And of those who we asked, 48% of those farmers under age 65 said that they had not sought treatment for a health care condition because of cost.” Ritter says that same research showed the cost of health care affected nearly 80% of their members’ farm businesses.
