The Orange County Register | Health care as it should be: Letters

I’ve been an insurance broker for 28 years and have had my own personal policy during this time. I was with Health Net when Obamacare was enacted and was paying $390 a month for my family of five.

Health Net then decided to cancel all of their existing plans and make them all ACA compatible, so the new, cheapest plan was going to be over $900 a month.

Well, I wasn’t going to pay that amount and spoke to my brother about some Christian sharing plans and ended up going with Medi-Share. I have been with them for 3 1/2 years and am currently paying $328 a month. The plan has worked out perfectly and I will never go back to traditional insurance.

In fact, I am currently at the hospital waiting for my daughter’s surgery to be completed. We are utilizing a benefit that Medi-Share has where we use the providers that they recommend and in doing so, the surgery will not cost us one dollar out of pocket.

As an incentive, they are also going to waive our next three months of monthly share amounts (premiums) which will save me almost $1,000. This is how the market should work and probably would work if we didn’t have all of this government interference.
