When someone says Health Care, Single Payer or Medicare, Republicans are immediately up in arms. They are of the strict understanding that the Health Care system which helps pay for those who cannot afford it, is bad and in recent times has been called a Socialist system...or Obamacare.
Well, what many do not want you to know is that there is already a system like that out there...it is called Medi-Share, and it is a real system by real Christians giving real care to those who need help to address their Medical needs.
"Medi-Share is a community of more than 36,000 Christians who follow the biblical model of sharing and paying each other's medical bills much like the early church did 2,000 years ago. And as a not-for-profit ministry that promotes healthy biblical lifestyles, participation is affordable."
See the Story at their website.
How does it work?
"Your fixed monthly share amount is used to match others healthcare costs. If you have a medical expense, Medi-Share participants will share your medical bills. In fact, since 1993 more than $490 million have been shared and saved leaving no medical needs unpaid for."
Their statement says..."Healthcare sharing ministries like Medi-Share are the only organizations to be exempt from the
regulations and costs of the recently passed health care bill. (Page 128, H.R. 3590 )"
I would love to let the Republicans/ Conservatives/Teabaggers/Birthers/Neo-Cons, know what real Christians think about Healthcare and why this is a great idea...as the Bible says it should be...maybe they would wake up and see the light...after all, What would Jesus do?
