I’ve talked about Samaritan Ministries before, a “medical sharing program” of which we have been members for about four years now.
With the “mind-blowing disaster for America” in Obamacare, I would urge Christians, now more than ever, to consider joining Samaritan’s Ministries. (We do get a referral bonus if a member mentions us, but that isn’t why I’m talking about it ;-))
(Members of Samaritan are excluded from penalties associated with the Obamacare insurance laws.)
We have had quite a few claims and can testify that the program works. My parents have also had some whopping claims (my Dad had heart surgery) and their medical charges were covered 100%.
If you’re new to how Samaritan works, you can read here to discover how thousands of Christians basically share each other’s medical expenses. It is so freeing to give our money directly to another family for their needs.
We had a doctor tell us that this program is so much more beneficial to medical providers as they do not have to deal with and pay for the burdensome bureaucracy involved with insurance companies. That fact also allows them to give cash-pay patients substantial discounts (the insurance companies deny a large percentage of what is charged, thus the hike in initial charges). We have experienced only positive reactions from the medical profession with the program.
Additionally, board members are being elected soon, and we have a dear friend who has applied. If you are a Samaritan’s member, I highly recommend Chris King, friend, brother-in-Christ, and brilliant business man as a nominee for Samaritan’s board. He has an excellent resume and would no doubt be a very beneficial asset to Samaritan’s Ministries.
