Samaritan Ministries provides its members with the refreshing opportunity to apply the principles of New Testament living to 21st-century health care. Today, more than 70,000 member households worldwide send a monthly financial share directly to other member households who have medical needs. Samaritan members also pray for one another and include notes and cards of encouragement and comfort.

In this simple way, they are currently sharing more than $25 million each month, with affordable monthly shares for individuals, couples and families of any size. Samaritan Ministries recently introduced a new membership level called Samaritan Basic, which features even lower monthly share amounts—starting at $100, $200 and $250—coupled with a higher initial unshared amount, giving both current and potential members another way to make the best health care sharing decisions for their families. Contact Samaritan Ministries for details or visit this link.

Samaritan members are also exempt from the health insurance mandate in the federal Affordable Care Act, and they do not share in needs for unbiblical practices like abortion.
