If you have been a Liberty HealthShare member for a while, you might already know how to submit a bill or receipt through your online ShareBox. You also may or may not have encountered an issue with what's known as "balance billing." For those of you who are new to Liberty, or if you simply are not familiar with these two topics, here’s a quick refresher:
Last year, Liberty HealthShare member Christine Lloyd visited her doctor when she became unwell. What she thought was a simple cold was actually the beginning of a health spiral that left her in the ICU, fighting for her life.
Watch Christine's husband Norman share their story.
This is the first post in a series on getting and staying healthy this fall and winter. Check back for ways to stay active, enticing seasonal recipes, and tips for managing stress as we approach the holidays.
Fall is a great time to recommit to your fitness goals by getting outside. The views at your local parks are great, you can get health benefits from a variety of fun activities that feel nothing like a workout, and it's cool enough that you won't find yourself dripping with sweat during activity. Here are a few ways you and your family can stay active even when the temperatures drop:
Fall is finally here. The air is crisp, the sunlight is golden, and the leaves show off their best sides. There’s just something about it. But as enjoyable as this time of year is, it’s also when many of us find ourselves struggling to maintain wellness on multiple fronts.
You've probably heard the slogan "no farms, no food" before. It seems fairly obvious, but these days, most of us have lost our connection to the work that goes into providing what goes on our plates. And while farms are essential, they are only land and buildings without committed farmers who are willing to get up before the sun, in all kinds of weather, in order to steward the land and animals in their charge.
Getting the most medical care for your money
John Hunt, MD
Chief Medical Officer
Thirty-to-Fifty percent of medical procedures and tests are wasteful. As members of a Christian healthcare sharing ministry, each of us is obliged to think conscientiously about the choices we make regarding medical expenses. Certainly, if I ask my community to share in my medical expense, I ought to work very hard to make sure that the expense is reasonable.
When costs became her number one concern, Karen found Liberty HealthShare.
Whatever your reason for joining Liberty HealthShare; whether it’s our community of like-minded people, the freedom that comes with directing and managing your own healthcare, or the financial responsibility you can exercise as a member, we are glad you are here. It is our goal that you experience all these benefits and more through your membership. Just recently, Karen O. from Florida shared her impressions with us:
At Liberty HealthShare, our goal is for our members to have an experience they want to share with others. That’s why it is so rewarding for us when we find out a new enrollee has been referred to us by a friend or family member. Knowing your experience as a Liberty HealthShare member has led you to tell others about us confirms our hard work is having an impact.
I was at a conference in Washington, D.C. when I received a reminder email concerning my October newsletter article. Friends and colleagues suggested I could write about autumn and highlight fall spices that can help address certain health conditions.
Although it was a good and timely suggestion, as I did some sightseeing in our nation’s capital, I found inspiration in an unlikely place.I noticed there was a fast food establishment on just about every corner, and it got me thinking about a national epidemic that likely affects all Liberty HealthShare members, either personally or by association. That epidemic is obesity.
Drip. Perk. French press. Pour over. Cold brew. Espresso. Nitro-infused. What's your favorite way to drink coffee? Today is National Coffee Day, according to...well, whoever it is that assigns celebratory days for beloved foods and beverages.
Thankfully, unlike some of the more decadent foods deemed special enough to get their own day - think bacon, pie, and ice cream - coffee doesn't have to derail your health and wellness goals. In fact, according to the Mayo Clinic website, the health benefits of consuming coffee likely outweigh the risks for most people.
