New ShareBox Coming February 1st
As part of our effort to improve our systems, we're excited to announce we are updating the ShareBox to make it a platform for continued growth and innovation. This is the first time in five years since there has been a major change to the ShareBox system.
Learn About Liberty's Pre-Notification Process
We rely on our members to understand and live out the healthcare sharing mentality throughout your interactions with healthcare professionals and providers. We hope to give you the tools you need to make this possible. Liberty’s pre-notification process is one such tool.
Blessed, Mocked and Lied About: And I'm happy about it!
The ancient prophets were laughed at and mocked on a regular basis but they were some of God’s favorite people. Take a step back and let God fight your battles and enjoy the blessing of His presence. He knows all about it and you.
A New, Direct Approach to Healthcare
These days, interacting with the medical world is often exasperating and time-consuming. Believe it or not, doctors and their staffs find these problems frustrating too! Thankfully, there are many practitioners who have moved to a new model called Direct Primary Care (DPC).
Redemption Begins at Christmas
When Jesus was born, He opened the door of redemption to our fallen world. As we all know only too well, the world remains fallen as we struggle against the effects of sin and its hold on our lives. In recent years, an undercurrent of unrest, polarization, and anger have characterized our nation.
Family Stress at the Holidays
For most of us, the next six weeks or so will include at least one family get-together. Depending on the person and his or her history, the very thought of these festivities evoke a wide range of emotions, from joy to outright dread. So what can you do to prepare for the stress you might experience?
November is National Diabetes Month
November is National Diabetes Month. This annual event is meant to raise awareness about diabetes in its various forms. Incredibly, nearly one in four adults with diabetes are unaware that they have the disease. This month is a great opportunity to learn about your risk.
Self-Care for New Moms
One of our favorite phone calls to receive from a member is the announcement that they have welcomed a new addition to their family. As joyous as it is to welcome a new baby, it is also a huge adjustment, especially for a new mom. Here are a few self-care strategies we recommend for new moms.
Seasonal Affective Disorder and the Holidays
The holiday season is a joyful time of year for most, but for some, SAD (seasonal affective disorder,) can negatively affect this festive time of year. SAD is a type of depression that affects a person during a certain time every year. This is commonly brought on during the winter months, and can be called the “winter blues."
Commitment To Excellence
I am pleased to tell you that over the last several weeks we have taken additional steps toward the goal of processing bills within 3 days after receipt at Liberty. It is going to be a reality in the near term. We also have improved efficiencies and added headcount to ensure we are answering calls in a more timely manner. Thanks to improvements, when you call us, we will answer.
Understanding Breast Cancer
Each October, many charities, research organizations, medical institutions, and individuals participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month to spread the word about the need for early detection and proper treatment for those diagnosed with breast cancer. Understandably, most people prefer not to dwell on their cancer risk or entertain thoughts of what might happen if they were diagnosed, but the reality is that breast cancer will affect roughly 1 in 8 women born today.
Prioritizing Heart Health During The Holidays
What do you picture when you hear the words “holiday heart?” The phrase might evoke images of warm family gatherings, wintry outings with friends that end with hot cider, or even chocolates. As lovely as these nostalgic scenes might be, “holiday heart syndrome” actually refers to an increase in emergency room visits and hospital admissions from an irregular heart rhythm that many people experience around the holidays. It can happen to anyone, even otherwise healthy people.
What IS Candy Corn?
In less than two weeks, many of us will face a steady stream of costumed little ones visiting our front doors and begging for something sweet to eat. Unless you want to spend the evening sitting in the dark and pretending not to be home, it’s best not to be caught empty-handed (this author cannot confirm nor deny prior experience in this department).
