Savings: As we talk about in the main Medi-Share review and price comparison pages, most will save over 60% compared to traditional health insurance. And that’s just on a cost basis not factoring in the perks discussed below. If you’re self-employed or otherwise need to provide for your own healthcare, savings of thousands of dollars per year can be invaluable for you and your family.
Customer Support: There is no better health insurance-related customer support. It’s that simple. Many issues can be quickly resolved over chat or email. Phone support requires almost no waiting and you quickly speak with an empowered Christian customer care agent who genuinely cares about you and your family. If you don't believe me, try calling!
Free Telehealth: See a doctor almost instantly for an online consultation. Perhaps most importantly, they can prescribe. So if you need antibiotics for a child in the middle of the night, for example, you can just make an online appointment and easily get the prescription (assuming the doctor agrees that’s the right treatment option, of course).
Careington Dental and Vision: I’ve had more and more appreciation for this perk recently. While most dental and vision-related expenses aren’t eligible for sharing, you automatically become enrolled in the Careington discount program. These are significant discounts at a tremendous number of dentists, periodontists, eye exams, frames, etc. I have personally saved over three thousand dollars worth of dentist bills from Careington discounts.
Everything Online: While there are plenty of paper options available for those who prefer the old-fashioned way, you can now do almost anything online as a member. This includes: Seeing new bills as soon as Medi-Share receives them; automatic share payments; virtual copies of your membership card; customer support chat; finding providers; and much more. Do it on your computer or through the phone app quickly and easily.
This is why I appreciated Medi-Share's stance on the vaccine so much. Quoted directly from a letter written by Medi-Share's medical director, Dr. Alesia Greene, and posted right on the site:
"Remember, whether or not you choose to receive the vaccine is a personal choice, and one only you can make. What a privilege that we can take our cares and concerns before the Lord in prayer and ask for His wisdom and guidance in all things.
"'Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.' 3 John 2"
How well said.
