Understanding Renewal Fees

July 6th, 2018 Tags: member-educationhealthcare-costsnew-memberssharing-guidelines

We often receive questions from our members about the purpose of annual renewal fees. Without understanding the context of this yearly addition, many members contact us feeling confused and frustrated by the extra dollars added to their monthly share amount. There is no need for alarm, and we hope to equip members with the info they need to be savvy consumers both within the Liberty community and the greater context of medical health.

Important Member Info: Understanding Pre-Notification

January 9th, 2018 Tags: medical-billssharing-guidelineshealthcare-costsnew-memberscost-reductionaccount-updatespre-notification

Liberty HealthShare is not an insurance company. We are a ministry that facilitates the sharing of medical costs among the people who participate in this voluntary community. The funds come from our members, not corporate coffers. For this reason, we often remind our members to join us in doing everything they can to reduce the often outrageous costs associated with healthcare.

This time of year, we tend to see a significant increase in the number of member bills submitted for sharing. Though we cannot be sure of the reason for this, it is possible this is due at least in part to the third-party payer model and deadlines by which many of our members have previously functioned. Whatever the reason, we want to remind our members of a few important factors to consider before they submit more bills at this time of year.

November 13th, 2017 Tags: account-updatesnew-memberssharing-guidelines

Pregnancy is a time of joy, but it can also be one of mixed emotions for some mothers-to-be. While there are, of course, many things to look forward to, stresses such as doctors appointments, morning sickness, and financial realities (to name a few) can dampen even the most optimistic of spirits. Here at Liberty HealthShare, we are invested in helping our members navigate the process of paying for their medical costs with as little confusion and stress as possible.
