    It Looks Like Health Insurance, but It’s Not. ‘Just Trust God,’ Buyers Are Told.

    It Looks Like Health Insurance, but It’s Not. ‘Just Trust God,’ Buyers Are Told. - The New York Times

    Some state regulators are scrutinizing nonprofit Christian cost-sharing ministries that enroll Americans struggling to pay for medical care, but arent legally bound to cover their members claims.

    Eight-year-old Blake Collie was at the swimming pool when he got a frightening headache. His parents rushed him to the emergency room only to learn he had a brain aneurysm. Blake spent nearly two months in the hospital.

    His family did not have traditional health insurance. We could not afford it, said his father, Mark Collie, a freelance photographer in Washington, N.C. Instead, they pay about $530 a month through a Christian health care sharing organization to pay members medical bills. But the group capped payments for members at $250,000, almost certainly far less than the final tally of Blakes mounting medical bills.
    ================================================== ========================
    Just trust God, the nonprofit group, Samaritan Ministries, in Peoria, Ill., said in a statement about its coverage, and advises its members that there is no coverage, no guarantee of payment.

    Sounds a lot like Elmer Gantry to me - a smooth talking con man out to fleece the faithful. See Elmer Gantry (film) - Wikipedia

    'Elmer Gantry (Burt Lancaster) is a hard-drinking, fast-talking traveling salesman with a charismatic personality who infuses biblical passages and fervor into his pitches as a way to ease and collect money. '

    I have little sympathy for those who place their trust in preacher-con-men.


    It is extremely difficult to get a GOP Senator to accept something when their salary depends upon not accepting it.
