Samaritan Ministries: ‘We Are Once Again Reminded How Jesus Is Always Trustworthy to Give His People What They Need’
February 16, 2021
PEORIA, IL — Members of Samaritan Ministries International (Samaritan, www.samaritanministries.org) receiveda 19% reduction in their monthly shares for January, continuing a downward trend in medical needs sent to the ministry for sharing.
One unique feature of Samaritan’s Classic and Basic health care sharing programs is that, when a lower amount of needs is received at the Samaritan office, the savings can be passed on to all the members – unusual in the health care world.
“We are grateful to the Lord for this blessing, and to our members for being good health care stewards,” Samaritan told its members in January. “In the midst of a difficult health care and financial year for many members, we are once again reminded how Jesus is always trustworthy to give His people what they need.”
Samaritan Ministries has also seen a significant increase in member use of Healthcare Bluebook since the introduction of the Fair-Price Reward incentive, reducing total needs members have been asked to share by more than $3 million since July 1, 2020. For the remainder of 2021, Samaritan is rewarding Classic and Basic members with $250 per health care need for demonstrating that they obtained health care from a facility Healthcare Bluebook rates as a “fair-price provider.”
Through Samaritan Ministries’ effective, God-honoring ministry, thisgrowing biblical community shares approximately $30 million in medical needs person to person each month. Over the past 26 years, Samaritan Ministries members have shared more than $2.3 billion in needs while praying for and encouraging one another with personal notes, cards and letters.
