14 Dec: An Honest Medi-Share Review: A Low-Cost Christian Alternative to Health Insurance

Everyone deserves the safety and security that comes from a quality health insurance program. Yet for most people, the idea of coverage is little more than a dream. According to Marketwatch, one in four people don’t have access to healthcare. Some 40 million people can’t go to a doctor, fill their prescriptions, or get an annual checkup. But these millions of individuals aren’t skipping healthcare by choice. Instead, they’re foregoing healthcare because they simply can’t afford it. Sadly, the situation isn’t going to get better anytime soon. Health care premiums are expected to rise by up to 15% in the coming year, forcing more people to skip basic coverage. However, those looking to save money and enjoy quality care have…

Some Good News for Senior Medicare Beneficiaries

14 Oct: Some Good News for Senior Medicare Beneficiaries

Last Thursday, the Obama administration announced that senior Medicare beneficiaries will pay the same premiums in 2015 that they are paying this year and the same as the premiums they paid in 2013. This is good news for seniors who use Medicare, most of whom will pay a premium of $104.90 per month. These premiums fall under Part B of the federal insurance program and affect people who are over 65 years of age. They cover visits to the doctor, outpatient care, and necessary medical supplies.

11 Mar: Medi-Share: A “Financially Sound” Christian Alternative to Health Insurance

Health care is important to have. That is true both from the standpoint of one’s own personal finances as well as meeting recent legal requirements. While health coverage is important to have, there are some serious ethical and financial issues that can arise when people of faith are faced with dealing with traditional insurance companies. Their approach is not always in keeping with a Christian worldview. However, there is a Christian alternative for people of faith who are not happy with traditional health insurance plans. A more appropriately biblical approach to health care is offered by the medical program Medi-Share. The program is dedicated to providing health care for those who are followers of Christ. Mede-Share is described as: Reliable…

How Does Medi-Share Work?

03 Oct: How Does Medi-Share Work?

Medi-Share is one of the largest healthcare sharing programs in the United States that has seen steady, rapid growth since 2010, when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was passed by Congress. Since the act was passed, the government has begun implementing the program by stages. Many Christians are dissatisfied with some of the requirements and provisions in the Affordable Care Act, which include access to contraception and abortion, and the expense of purchasing the required health insurance. People who participate in Medi-Share pay significantly lower amounts for their care and can feel peace of mind in knowing that their money is not supporting activities that conflict with their faith. Medi-Share has grown by about…

What is Medi-Share and How Does It Work?

02 Apr: What is Medi-Share and How Does It Work?

Despite what most people may think, Medi-Share is not like an insurance policy. Health insurance is a policy that comes with a contractual agreement, entitling you to pay for your medical bills. On the other hand, Medi-Share revolves in the concept of members sharing their medical bills. This is done on a non-guaranteed basis. The concept also involves trusting God to supply during their times of need by means of the charitable gifts of other Christians. Medi-Share is a Christian health insurance alternative. What Makes Medi-Share Exceptional? Medi-Share has been working to provide its members the assistance they need through the concept of sharing and helping one another.

Medi-Share: Your Christian Health Insurance Alternative

20 Feb: Medi-Share: Your Christian Health Insurance Alternative

As Americans debate President Obama’s health care plan, many are seeking a Christian health insurance alternative. Medi-Share is an option that some are using and others are considering.

09 Jul: Ron Paul on prescription drug reimportation

You might be surprised to know that there are 15 physicians in Congress — more than I would have expected. It would be nice to think that these doctors could provide clarity and insight on healthcare issues — perhaps even drive the debate over reform. The reality, unfortunately, is that they generally toe their party lines and seem to fade in the background. I guess being an expert politician is more important than being an expert anything else in Washington. In fact, the last time I can recall a physician Congressman bringing his medical “expertise” to bear was when then Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist shamelessly demagogued on the Terri Schiavo family tragedy, challenging the diagnosis of Schiavo’s physicians that…

08 Apr: How do you know you can trust an online retailer?

eDrugSearch.com was founded on the premise that it can be difficult to know which online retailers you can trust — particularly when the product is prescription medications, and you are comparison shopping for the best price. It’s not worth saving a few dollars (or even a lot of dollars) to risk being ripped off or, worse, being sold a bad product.

That’s why our comparison shopping engine only includes pharmacies that follow our 10 Commandments.

11 Nov: The Health 2.0 Blog Gives Voice to a Movement

Over the last week we’ve been a little slow on posting, but we are busy with lots of good things here at eDrugSearch. However, we had to take some time out to mention the launch of the new Health 2.0 Blog by the talented Indu Subaiya and the author of “The Health Care Blog” Matthew Holt. We are particularly excited about this new blog that builds on the great work of Johannes Ernst with his Health2.0 wiki.
