Welcome to my member review site of
We joined this health care sharing ministry in Nov 2013 after our Blue Cross insurance policy became way too overpriced for the value it was offering. We were desperate to find something affordable and looked at many traditional options with no success. At best we could save $100/month, but it was still much too high for our budget.
After a friend suggested health care sharing ministries, specifically Samaritan Ministries, I began my journey into researching this “new-to-me” concept. These ministries have been around for 30 years and appear to be coming into their own and gaining in popularity. I liked what I saw and heard so much we decided to make the switch and are so glad we did.
This website is a dedicated review of all the research I did on Samaritan as well as the other two ACA exempt ministries available. Each one has it’s benefits and drawbacks. While most of the site is dedicated to the ministry we chose (Samaritan), I have also included a variety of health care related posts and a comparison to the other two ministries (Medishare and Christian Healthcare Ministries).
If you have questions I encourage you to ask them on the various pages, I will answer to the best of my ability. Since I do no work for Samaritan or speak for them I also encourage you to contact the main office of the ministry as they know their guidelines better than anyone and are so wonderful to speak with.
Good luck with your research, and I hope you find that a health care sharing ministry is a good fit for your family. I look forward to welcoming you as a Samaritan member!
