Prepaid group health practice in a new community

Abstract

This study of the factors leading to enrollment in a prepaid group health practice was undertaken from a framework that viewed enrollment as a decision reflecting life style. Occupational type was examined for effect on life style and thus indirectly on enrollment. Data gathered in a household survey in a planned community revealed that individuals with bureaucratic occupational backgrounds were more mobile but tended to utilize community resources earlier and more readily. Higher morbidity led to lower rates of enrollment; participation in community activities led to higher rates of enrollment.
