A Health Care Sharing Ministry program can be an important part of a comprehensive health care program, as it can help reduce the cost of prescription medications. By sharing resources from its members, this program will prove to be worth the cost. Below are some of the many ways this unique community can help with different medical situations.
Help for Regular Medications
According to the United States Census Bureau, 35% of adults in the U.S. reported regular prescription medication use. JHS Community’s Paramount Rx, provides members with access to discounted prescription medications. This can be a great advantage for those who frequently purchase medications and rely on them to maintain their health. Through Paramount Rx, patients can receive up to a 20% discount on name-brand medications and up to a 70% discount on generics. What’s more, there are up to 57,000 participating pharmacies nationwide, including CVS and Walgreens.
Help for Medical Emergencies
When it comes to emergency situations, having access to reliable health care is essential. With an HCSM, members are able to receive discounts on necessary emergency medications and medical care. JHS Community’s Campus, Capstone, and Canon health care programs offer services for primary care physicians, urgent care visits, emergency room visits, and ambulances. This helps ensure that all members can access the care they need, even when they find themselves in a tight spot.
Help for Long-Term Needs
For those with long-term medical needs, the cost of care can quickly add up over time. A shared health care ministry program may provide discounts on long-term medications and medical visits that are necessary to maintain good health. Additionally, many programs offer access to special prescription drugs and treatments that would otherwise be too costly for individuals to purchase. JHS Community’s Capstone program provides services for inpatient and outpatient mental health services; occupational, physical, cardiac rehabilitation, and speech therapy; and inpatient and outpatient surgery, so you can feel confident knowing you have them for the help you need.
Help for Uninsured Members
Uninsured members are often at a disadvantage when it comes to accessing quality health care. A shared health care ministry program can provide uninsured individuals with access to discounted prescription medications and medical care. This can help those who lack insurance get the care they need without incurring large out-of-pocket costs.
JHS Community is an excellent way to help reduce the cost of medical care and prescriptions. By pooling resources from its members, these programs can provide discounts on regular, emergency, and long-term care. For any questions, call us today for more information!
