Community-Based Health Financing

Community-Based Health Financing What is a Community-Based Health Financing Scheme ? A CBHF Scheme is any scheme managed and operated by an organization, other than government or a private for-profit company, that provides risk pooling to cover the costs (or part thereof) of health care services. The scheme is voluntary in nature but could be owned by a variety of organizations and covers a variety of benefit packages.
I am amazed no one in the US has considered using this model as a cost-effective way of providing healthcare. If it works well in developing countries, why can't it be made to work in the US ?

  1. I guess because the US health system is run by beaurocrates who only know politics and nothing else. I am a Family Practice physician in US and I deal with their stupid decisions everyday.
