My husband and I are both self-employed, so major medical health insurance is beyond expensive for our family! We wouldn’t have been able to afford it, so Samaritan has been a life saver for us for the past 5 years. We only get health care when we really need it, but we have kids, so it seems like there’s something big nearly every year. Four years ago, my son broke his arm and needed surgery. Three years ago, the same son had pancreatitis and was in the hospital for several days. Most recently, member shares helped us with our son being born in May. In each of these cases, I diligently negotiated as many discounts as I could, but we still would’ve been stuck making payments on over $20,000 of our remaining out-of-pocket costs if it weren’t for this ministry. We gladly send our shares and special prayer needs every month knowing that we are alleviating similar burdens.

Just got a call from the kindest, most compassionate employee of Samaritan ministries. Thank you for your prayers!  Join me in asking God for complete healing of my son Bode’s concussion, broken collar bone, and nerve injury in his leg. And praise HIM for protection past, present, and future.

I joined Samaritan Ministries in April 2019. I just could not afford Blue Cross/Blue Shield of North Carolina as a small-business owner. My niece’s husband is a life insurance guru. Very smart, researched all health care sharing ministries. Next thing I know his family of 5 has joined Samaritan Ministries. I’m like, “That’s good enough for me.”

It was very easy to join. I did what I needed to do, chatted with a few of their staff members. So, so nice, and you end with a prayer. How refreshing.

Fast forward to April 2020. I noticed a swollen lymph node under my arm. No big deal. Well, it was. Stage 2 breast cancer. After soaking that in, of course, I was thinking, “Did I make the right decision with Samaritan?”

I was nervous, of course. I called an advocate at Samaritan. He was wonderful! Assured me all would be paid, how it worked, what I needed to do, and, at the end of the call, he said, “My wife had breast cancer, I know where you are at.” And then he prayed with me, just what I needed.

A beautiful, heartfelt prayer.

I started getting all the tests, chemo, doctor’s appointments. My life was in a whirlwind, but I kept great records and started submitting to Samaritan Ministries.

It’s all working. I’m getting Shares coming in so I can pay my bills and the notes I get with the checks and on PayPal ... unbelievable! And a big thank you to the folks navigating the bills and making the assignments. I’m in awe.

Thank you, Samaritan Ministries. I tell everyone about you.

I had a cervical discectomy and fusion on December 31.  I am so thankful that it was a complete success and even more grateful for the Shares and notes of encouragement I received, which allowed me to focus on recovery.  This was my first major Need and it went so smoothly. Thanks to all who shared in my medical need.

I just wanted to thank everyone for their support. 

My husband and I joined SM a year ago, and our first ever need was maternity. The staff at Samaritan  made it so easy to navigate submitting bills. 

The community sent the sweetest notes along with their Shares and the kindest prayers for baby James. We are so grateful to have found this ministry.
