Read the post from Money Saving Mom about the Samaritan Health Care Ministry:
I believe the Samaritan’s Health Cost Sharing ministry is a great idea and is working. However, the following is my response to the post:
We would like to join Samaritan, but we can’t afford $370 per month.
Currently, my husband and I go without health insurance and God has been faithful to take care of us. My husband currently has a cellulitis infection and we are treating it naturally as we have done in the past.
We treat colds and flues all naturally and ask for God’s will and intercession before we see the doctor.
My children have Medicaid for their once a year visit.
If we were to be in an accident, there are many ways it could be covered, including by charity from the hospital because of our low-income.
God knows how hard my husband works to support our family (over 80 hours per week), and where we are at financially, and meets us there. Until the fines for not getting insurance exceed $4000 per year (what it would cost for us to join Samaritan or get “regular” insurance), this is where we will live.
