As part of our Human Interest series on Liberty HealthShare staff members, we interviewed Leslie Brunk (pictured with her son), the supervisor of our Member Services department. She and her team function as the front line of Liberty's member care. Members call with questions about anything from the Sharing Guidelines to doctor appointments and talk to someone under Leslie's direction. Many members speak with Leslie when their complex medical circumstances require her hands-on guidance and expertise.
We believe that combating health care costs begins with caring for personal health. This value is at the core of our healthsharing model, as we encourage our members to take on responsibility for healthful choices before there are ever medical bills to share. To this end, we offer the HealthTrac Program to incoming members with pre-existing conditions like Type 2 diabetes, obesity, or smoking, that can be alleviated by healthy lifestyle changes. Members are paired with a personal health coach who helps them create and work towards achievable fitness and diet goals until they graduate from the program as fully integrated members of Liberty HealthShare. One of our members, Carla, reached out to us with her experience in the HealthTrac program since joining Liberty, and it is our pleasure to share her story.
In today’s fast paced digital age, it can be a chore to keep your personal information safe from those who would misuse it. We want to equip you with these tips from our IT Security Team to thrive as a member of both Liberty HealthShare and the digital world.
At Liberty HealthShare, we are privileged to invite members to take back control of their healthcare in an industry where costs are skyrocketing beyond foreseeable limits. It can be daunting to navigate the intricate policies and red-tape that mark our national healthcare system. Many people choose to forfeit their say in their healthcare costs by opting for a third-party insurance rather than pushing for the best possible cost and care.
Being a member of Liberty HealthShare means that you are a part of a nationwide community that supports one another through shared costs and shared commitment. A great way to meet your fellow members in person is to attend one of our regional Member Meet-ups. Our most recent member meet-up was held on the evening of May 30th at a restaurant in San Antonio.
But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God. 2 Corinthians 4:2 (ESV)
As believers, we have the privilege and responsibility of sharing God's word with those around us, but there is a lot of pressure to interpret the words of Scripture through cultural, political, and social filters so they seem more relevant or useful. As this passage points out though, the Bible does not need our embellishment or help to do its work.
