Why SMI? It was clear for Katie Kieffer

Katie Kieffer’s discovery of health care sharing ministries while researching her book Let Me Be Clear cleared things up for her.
The author wanted to find a way to satisfy the requirements of the Affordable Care Act without getting sucked into supporting its mandates and other requirements.
She happily settled on Samaritan Ministries.
“I really appreciate the transparency and the ability to know where my money is going,” she says. “Even though it might take a little bit of effort each month in terms of writing a note, or paying attention to additional things that maybe I wouldn’t have to think about otherwise, I do think it’s worth the effort. It makes me more grateful for what I have as I read the monthly prayer guide. You read about joyful stories, like parents giving life. Samaritan members are open to life. That’s very uplifting to hear about.”
She also says she appreciates the public policy updates that most people don’t have time to research on their own.
