Vote Coming Soon


Posted by admin | Posted in Samaritan Newsletters | Posted on

Samaritan members will be voting this month about whether to increase the monthly share since we had 3 months in a row which were prorated. I haven’t received my voting letter yet, but it sounds like that will be coming in the next 7-10 days. I don’t know the exact amount that is being suggested for the increase, but I think for the family share it will be just over $400/month. About a 9-10% increase, with the last increase being 2 years ago. I’m still just so amazed at how little this membership costs per month compared to our former insurance plan.

When I get my voting information I will let you know what the details are and update my website if the share increase in approved. I don’t know how other members will vote, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out. If it is approved by the majority then the increase would be effective with our July share.

Stay tuned for further details!

We have just become members within the last two months and living on our Social Security. We are happy to able to be members of Samaritan Ministries, but to have an increase in our membership fees now would be financially hard. We are sending our ballot in and marking No, but if it passes we would like to apply for the Sponsorship program.

I’m sorry to hear about a potential hardship, and I respect your vote of no, thanks for sharing. I really wish this country could get its health care costs under control and then no increases would be necessary. I hope the sponsorship program (if it passes) is a good option for you. Thanks for writing!
