"Why I Switched to Medi-Share:" In Their Words

Oct 17, 2017

Reading time: 6 Minutes

It’s easy to spout stats about healthcare options, or to come up with the top 10 reasons this option is better than another. But don’t just take our word for it.


At the end of the day, we all like to hear from real people before we make a decision, especially when it comes to something important like healthcare.


Testimonies are powerful. So here are a few personal accounts from members and why they chose Medi-Share.


“Given the recent rise in premiums through the exchanges, I know we're continuing to see even greater savings by being a part of Medi-Share. We're still with our same doctors and we're still getting the care we need.”
– Philip (PT Money)


“I had [an insurance plan] for 14 years and dreaded every phone call. With Medi-Share, I speak to very helpful, delightful people that pray with me at the end of every phone call! It truly makes my day better.” – Shawna T.


“We just switched after years of debating. We took it to prayer often and we always passed it off as the wrong time or some excuse. This year at our renewal of our current program, the cost went from $1,100.00/month to $1,944.00! We knew it was not an option and again turned to Medi-Share. We got it all set up with Christiana who was wonderful to walk us through it, and one day in the mail came a note about our first share in someone’s need. I opened it and read it and I can only say my heart was so full of love for this family – it was almost overwhelming! God is so good, and by His leading and us switching to MediShare we have been blessed. We have been holding this family up in prayer and have been able to reach out and share God’s love and provision in a deeper way than I ever expected. We are blessed to be healthy and had many questions as you may have. We set our annual household portion higher and are able to afford our monthly share, and have felt "comfortable" with it. Our focus is now caring for and loving others, and standing with them.” – Debbie W.


“Does your insurance company pray for you before you get off the phone? Medi-Share is better! We’re so glad we have this incredible network to walk through medical issues with!” – Grace D.


“Our traditional plan was going to cost more than what we pay for our mortgage! So thankful for Medi-Share.”
– Natalie G.


“Our family is so excited about making the switch to Medi-Share! We will be saving 13K in 2017 by making this move.”
– Lorie A.


“After looking at the Share Calculator I was excited to see that we were going to save over $500 from what we had been paying.” – Dave M.


“We were drowning in medical debt even WITH our employer-based insurance policy, and we were desperate for a solution. A friend told us about Medi-Share and I did tons of research checking into it. Even still, we were nervous making the change but we felt God had opened a door for us to walk through. Just three months after joining, our son was rushed by ambulance to a nearby Children's Hospital for an unknown infection. I called Christian Care Ministry to let them know we'd gone to the ER. Just a few minutes into the call, I was in tears trying to explain what was going on with our little boy. The woman on the other end calmed me down and told me that God knew what was going on. She prayed over our son, our family, and over me to be able to have the strength to support him as we waited on God to reveal what was going on. When I hung up the phone that day I had happy tears pouring down my face. I kept thinking, ‘How differently would that call have gone if we were still with our old policy?’ I have become a RAVING fan of MediShare, and I tell everyone I know about it. THANK YOU for providing a way for our family to have quality medical care, but also for giving us a way to make a difference in the lives of others who are going through what we did.” – Sara E.


“I am 34 years old and I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in July 2017. I have a wonderful husband and three precious daughters! I am truly thankful for Medi-Share and each and every member who contributes monthly to sharing everyone’s medical bills. It truly has blessed our lives and my family is eternally grateful. I received my first CT scan results in September and already some tumors were gone, while the ones that are left are already half their original size. My doctor knows it's a miracle as well as everyone around us. I know God isn't finished with me yet but He allowed this in my life to give me new perspective, to learn to love like Jesus, and to give Him all the honor and glory He deserves!!! Thank you to everyone who is sharing and making a difference in the lives of others. This ministry is blessed and I am proud to be a part of it!!!” – Jessica P.


“Not long ago, I left my job of 30 years as a paramedic to join my wife full-time in our small home-based business. Since Medi-Share was the best value for our healthcare that I could find at the time, we joined. Up to this time, we had been healthy and rarely had a need to go to a doctor. A couple of months into our journey with Medi-Share our son fell and broke his arm, which ultimately required surgery. Then, earlier this year, I had two kidney stones that required surgical intervention as well. These two episodes took place within the first year of being Medi-Share members. I have to admit I had reservations, but I'm happy to say, other than our monthly share and annual household portion, Medi-Share members shared in all of our medical expenses associated with these two incidents – the sum of which was just under $74,000.00. I'm so thankful to the Lord that this ministry is available and I actively recommend Medi-Share to my family and friends.” – Ron B.
