Liberty Health Share
« on: May 07, 2018, 03:46:07 PM »
Does anybody use Liberty Health Share? Can we start a thread with feedback with everybody's positive or more importantly their negative experiences? I think we can all gain from such a thread. Lets put aside the Halachic shailos for now whether your Rav matir's it or not. I personally have used it at least once seriously(meaning 4k in bills and up) and they came through very nicely. I had to use their medical billing advocate to negotiate with the hospital the rate but besides for that they paid it!

Iím thinking about signing up for liberty, does anyone know of anyone with a negative experience?
Has anyone not gotten reimbursed? Do they let you pick your doctors?

It's based on Liberty, I'd perfer to hear how well that works before joining anything.

Hey this is exactly why I just was searching on here... so how offensive would it be if I slightly hijacked your thread at this point? Seriously though, can anyone be so kind as to point to some information or links on how this works halachikally? My doctor suggested I do a plan like this, he said he hears rabbonim say it's ok but he doesn't know details.

I found 4 of these pooled health things, and all but Liberty seem to require bowing down before signing up - don't imagine how that can be ok -

You answered your own question, either Liberty or the Jewish plan.
Truth is, even if I was allowed to lie about my faith I wouldn't - a health sharing org would seemingly give the organization more leeway to discriminate and deny payments, and it won't be hard for them to prove I'm not Christian if need be.

Besides for that Tanya says it's not possible. And I wonder what heter there can be to check that box. But it would make sense for these organizations to make exceptions to approve Jews as well....

So Liberty doesn't require converting?

I am actually filling out hte application for the Jewish one now. Apparently there's a promotion until tomorrow http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=92194.msg1932035#msg1932035
