You’ll find there are many ways we are making healthcare work. With Christian healthcare sharing and employee benefits addressing the cost and accessibility of health care, you can be sure your organization will be offering a preferred alternative.
Those electing Karis Health Choice will be supported and fulfilled by a nationwide community of committed Christians who have found a way to align their Biblical faith with their healthcare decisions.
At the core of Karis Health Choice is a different and positive way to address medical bills. Karis Health Choice provides a full-service, non-insurance solution for your organization as well as individuals.
Our healthcare sharing approach is orchestrated through a partnership with Samaritan Ministries, a long-time provider of such services.
Through our partnership with Samaritan Ministries, The Karis Group offers an excellent alternative to health insurance. Samaritan Ministries is a Christian, nonprofit organization that has facilitated the sharing of funds between its members who have medical needs since 1994.
Not only do the members share in one another’s health care needs, they also have the opportunity to encourage and pray for one another as part of the process. An extraordinary experience for all involved.
Samaritan Ministries and its members are Christians who are able and willing to sign a statement of faith, who are active in their church, and who enjoy the privilege of fulfilling the Biblical directive of sharing one another’s burdens.
Members save about 40% to 60% of the costs that are typically incurred with health insurance plans. Monthly shares are much lower than what is usually seen in insurance premiums.
Rather than paying premiums into an insurance company each month, with Samaritan Ministries, funds are shared member-to-member, across all 50 states in a simple and relational way.
We partner with Samaritan Ministries International (SMI), a recognized leader in providing healthcare sharing. Every month, more than 200,000 members, share more than $20 million in medical needs directly—one household to another (as of January 2017). They also pray for one another and send notes of encouragement.
When making such an important change in your employee benefits plan, the most common concern is: “Will my medical bills get paid?” This is the fundamental question everyone has when switching from the “understood” approach of health insurance to the less familiar approach of medical bill sharing that is used by our services. The “sharing” approach is focused on people sending people the needed funds to put towards the medical bills. The process involves:
Because Samaritan Ministries and healthcare sharing are not insurance, members can select any medical provider they wish. This means members choose their own doctor, dentist, specialist and more with no worries about being in or out of networks!
