New Survey Shows That Health Care Is a Top Voter Concern for the Coming Midterm Elections

Christians Are Not Searching Only for More Affordable, Effective Health Care Without Provider Limits—They Also Want to Honor God

PEORIA, Ill.—Americans are voting in state primary elections this spring, and they have many important concerns as they prepare for the midterm elections this fall.

According to a new survey from Huffington Post and YouGov, health care is a top concern for nearly a third (30 percent) of Americans, more than issues like gun policies (25 percent), immigration (25 percent) and the economy (24 percent).

Samaritan Ministries International, one of the leading health care sharing ministries in the country, knows that health care is important to Americans, especially as they become more concerned with escalating costs, limited choice of providers and whether their money goes toward practices and procedures that devalue human life.

The issue of health care touches every American, which is why so many are concerned about how the changing health care landscape has affected families,” said Anthony Hopp, Samaritan’s vice president of external relations. “By offering this effective and affordable ministry for Christians, Samaritan Ministries welcomes more than a quarter of a million members into Biblical community, where they can, as Galatians 6:2 instructs, ‘bear one another’s burdens’ by lifting up fellow members in prayer and support while sending financial shares directly to other member families. Health care will always be an important issue to consider, but when Christians come together and trust God with their health care, the entire experience changes—for the better.

Samaritan’s 76,994 member households (250,169 individuals) pray for one another while sharing $26 million in medical needs each month. The affordable monthly household financial share can be as low as $100 for one person and does not exceed $495 for a family of any size. Members are not bound to a network of doctors or health care providers, and they can rest assured that their financial shares are not used to pay for practices that dishonor God, such as abortion.

Jenna from Wyoming shares the sentiments of many other members like her.

“This is so much better than insurance! I am using it right now for a cardiac arrest I had in October! I have been overwhelmed to tears with the cards and letters I have received! The hospitals are happy because they are getting paid promptly! It’s a win-win all the way around!”

 Samaritan Ministries offers two membership levels, Samaritan Classic and Samaritan Basic. Samaritan Basic offers a lower monthly share coupled with a higher initial unshared amount than Samaritan Classic. This gives both current and future members two options for choosing what they believe is best for their families—and their budgets. Monthly shares for Samaritan Basic start as low as $100 for one person, $200 for two people and $250 for a family of any size, depending on age. Some guidelines differ between Samaritan Basic and Samaritan Classic; contact Samaritan Ministries for details or visit this link.
