A Christian Alternative to Health Insurance
With lawmakers trying to hammer out new health care policies and many Americans facing skyrocketing health insurance premiums, you may be wondering if there’s an alternative. An option to consider is Medi-Share, a program where Christians share each other’s medical expenses. Since beginning in 1993, Medi-Share members have saved and shared more than $470 million in medical expenses.
Medi-Share does not claim to be insurance. It’s a ministry that brings Christians together so that they can share their medical bills with one another. You pay in a set amount every month and that money will go towards supporting healthy, biblical lifestyles. You’ll even have access to a secure website where you can see where your money is going. You can then pray for those people and even send them notes of encouragement. Here are some other benefits of Medi-Share:
* There is a team of health experts in nursing, exercise physiology, nutrition and physical therapy that you can call on for health questions.
* There are a variety of options for the annual amount of eligible medical bills that a household must meet before their medical bills will be shared. You can choose from $500, $1250, $2500, $3750, $5000, $7500, or $10,000.
* You may be eligible for up to a 20% discount if you meet certain health measurements.
There are lots of eligible medical procedures and bills that Medi-Share will cover including pregnancy and adoption. For more information call (800) PSALM 23. Or you can visit the Medi-Share website and fill out a contact form.
