Why SMI? Money is going to help others

Growing up on the farm in Washington state, Ryan Yamane’s family got plenty of hard work, clean air, and good food. Doctor visits were few and far between. “We never had health insurance, and we never needed it.”
However, when Ryan married Julianne and their family grew, they looked for health insurance that would cover typical kid injuries, but not break the bank. Then a friend told them about Christian health care sharing, and Ryan and Julianne were in.
“We found health care sharing to be very cost-effective. We used it for the births of all five of our children—three in the hospital and two at home. One of the best things for us is knowing that our money is going to help other people, rather than funding an inefficient system.”
