Healthcare laws in our nation are ever-changing. Today, more than ever, it is important to stand together for the preservation and growth of healthcare sharing ministries.
One appeal of healthcare sharing is that it allows people of similar faith to share each other’s medical bills. A true community of sharing, with one mission, shared with over 400,000 believers.
The strength of community should be leveraged to communicate with elected officials about the value and benefits of belonging to our unique sharing ministry.
From time to time, members of Medi-Share may be asked for help in reaching out to their elected officials. Here are three helpful tips to get you started:
1. Tell your story. During a grassroots campaign, we will give you helpful information about the issues and what to ask your elected officials. Including your personal story about Medi-Share can be the difference that changes their hearts and minds.
2. Act promptly. It may look like an email that can wait, but most legislative action requires immediate response because of how fast legislation moves. So if you receive an email asking for your help, please respond within 24 hours.
3. Join the list. If you make a call, ask the legislative assistant to put your name down in opposition or support of the legislation in question.
Your actions will help keep our community safe, relevant, and thriving as we work together for successful and collaborative legislative results. Our government relations team will keep working to ensure that healthcare in our nation includes options for people who want to practice their faith through healthcare sharing.
As always, thank you to our Medi-Share members who understand and appreciate the power of community and the freedom to choose healthcare that matches their values. We appreciate your prayers!
