Very, very dissatisfied

If you're a senior, you'll spend all your time arguing with medical entities trying to get the required forms. I sent in all the necessary paperwork for a certain bill. I confirmed with the person who answered the phone that it was all there. Nothing happened. I called...

So others avoid wasting their time and money like I did...

Original review updated by user Nov 10, 2021
This company sucks! I signed up thinking, 'Oh great! A good 'Christian' based company. Why not work with fellow 'Christians' instead of some over-priced heartless insurance company. I then signed up and visited the doctor's office on two separate occasions. On both visits the medical offices refused to accept medi-share, they stated they've had nothing but problems with medi-share, and they no longer work with them. I submitted both bills to medi-share using their 'reimbursement' forms, because the clinics would not. I then had to call them 'over and over' to get the status of said bills. Over the course of several months I spoke to several medi-share rep's, was told each time the bills were being processed. I was told 'not to worry' 'everything is being taken care of'. I then received in the mail late notices for both bills, so I paid them myself 'out of pocket'. I then re-submitted the reimbursement forms and subsequently was told numerous times 'not to worry' 'it's all being taken care of'. Several more months pass, and I called them back, same response, BUT no reimbursement check was ever sent to me. I then tried emailing medi-share but each time they could never get me a straight answer as to when the reimbursement check would be issued. One time I received an email with scripture in BOLD CAPITAL letters, but no real answer. Finally I received an email saying I'd be reimbursed in early November 2021. Today, November 10, 2021 I spoke to a medi-share rep and was told, 'the reimbursement is being processed' but couldn't tell me anything more. I then asked to speak to the finance department and this person had no clue as to anything I was talking about, UNBELIEVABLE! I then asked to speak to a supervisor who somehow had all my information and finally told me that there would be NO reimbursement check, it would all be applied towards my share of cost. NOT ONCE was I told this before. These people don't seem to be on the same page, it's like they use different software systems or keep separate records.... PLEASE!!! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY USING MEDI-SHARE! I guarantee you'll regret it... Sincerely, Michael McShane

User's recommendation: IT'S A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!!

Personal observation from a past Medi-Share member

This isn't written to badmouth Medi-Share but simply a notice to those thinking about changing to their health care program. Before you enroll, remember this is NOT insurance and for that reason, my medical providers would not submit claims. I had to always pay the bill and then obtain the correct medical codes and costs from the provider to submit to Medi-Share for reimbursement. While I did recognize saving on my premium costs, it wasn't sufficient to offset the time needed to develop the claim for me to continue with Medi-Share. After one year, I returned to an insurance company. So all I'm saying is if you're considering a change to Medi-Share, be sure to first check with your providers to be sure they will submit the claims.

User's recommendation: Check with your providers before becoming a Medi-Share member.

Not paying my medical bills as they should be

I would never ever recommend this group for insurance. I know they don't call themselves an "Insurance" group but basically that is what they are but they share your medical bills with other members. I met my deductible of over $10,000.00 and then they were supposed to cover any other medical bills, except co payments, for the rest of the year but they are refusing to pay because they keep saying it's for a pre-existing condition, even though they have received letters from my doctors and many phone calls disputing this.

Positive Experience

My family of 8 has been with medi-share has been almost entirely positive. It takes extra work, but our medical care seems better than many in more traditional plans. We have to save and plan for the different rules of the company, but it has not been a problem. We have advised about 10 families in their decisions to join. None of them, let me repeat, none of them has voiced a complaint. Its not for everyone and we advise the problems/challenges, but we have been happy so far.

User's recommendation: Good for many, not for everyone.

Update

Happy to report that I have been offered a position with a great medical insurance program. I made the mistake of retiring early because I thought Medi-Share was the answer to my medical insurance needs. Well, it wasn't and I regretted quitting my job back in August 2019 ever since. After getting hit with 19+% increase in premium when the average increase was to be 7.5% was just too much. And, Medi-share had yet to even share one penny for me. The hassles of getting something covered as well. To my surprise, when I called to cancel, the rep offered me a 20% decrease in premium cost if I stayed. That shows me they are losing members and are doing what they can to stop the exodus. Of course, I said no. God has blessed me to rid myself of Medi-Share. As I stated earlier, they are a business performing under the guise of a Christian organization. Stay away.

Dissatisfaction with MediShare

A bicycle accident in April resulted in a shattered elbow. We did not schedule the accident with MediShare, but sought help after the accident at a nearby hospital in the covid 19 lockdown. We later learned it was out of network. MediShare has resisted every single request for reimbursement taking over six months to reimburse us less than one third of the cost. We had to file multiple appeals to get them to consider anesthesia for surgery to install a plate and seven screws as not elective. They don't care, they fight you every bit of the way, they offer no help negotiating the hospital charges, but they end every correspondence with a blessing. MediShare is the worst decision we have made.

User's recommendation: Avoid MediShare -they will resist every request for reimbursement.
