5% Share Reduction for November

Samaritan members received a pleasant surprise with their November share slips, there was a 5% reduction in share amounts because there were fewer needs and excess money available! Yay! When that happens members get a reduction that month. It’s a unique benefit that only Samaritan offers. It is further motivation for us to keep medical costs as low as possible by making smart treatment decisions, asking for cash discounts and continuing to be diligent with our prayers for God’s provision.

My heart aches for those who are suffering under the weight of crushing health insurance premiums. Many people are facing increases they cannot pay and are desperately looking for something else. I remember that feeling and I hope that those in need will be led to learn about Samaritan and health care sharing. It’s a leap of faith to step out into something different, but we quickly learn we are leaping away from crumbling rocks and onto solid ground. Samaritan is firmly rooted in Christ and the members are actively sharing in the medical bills of those in need. And we know that when/if we have our own needs the members will be there for us, too.

If you know of others who are looking for something better, even if you haven’t made the decision yourself about health care sharing, please share this site and Samaritan’s name with them. Health care sharing isn’t for everyone, but you never know who is in need and hungering for something more meaningful, connected to their faith, affordable and comforting. During these highly uncertain times knowing there’s another option can bring so much peace.

“It was lovely to receive gifts and notes of encouragement. It is totally different than my experience with insurance companies! I’m so happy I made the choice to join Samaritan.” — unsigned

“My need was met; physically, financially (even during a time of prorating), and spiritually (God’s people praying). Praise the Lord!” — James and Tammy in Virginia

“We’re so thankful for the Special Prayer Need gifts we received. It was such a blessing to see God move in the hearts of members to meet our financial need.” — Rick and Angel in Alabama

“For a year and a half we were on an ACA exchange plan. It was a nightmare to get anything covered. This is my first time having a need shared and it was an amazing blessing. To receive the shares is a joy but the letters of prayer and encouragement from each member reinforces my love and faith in Jesus Christ and His body of believers. I’m so thankful that Samaritan Ministries exists.” — Christopher in Colorado

“We had submitted other needs before, but nothing as large as a pregnancy! I have to admit, I was scared about it financially panning out, but it really did! I had some anxiety about this pregnancy and prayed regularly for our son’s health and a smooth delivery. What made the difference was feeling the prayers of all of those who wrote to us. Knowing there were so many people out there praying for us brought so much peace and comfort. Thank you, Samaritan Ministries!”  – Maureen in Illionis
