Beverly Davis, Tyler, Texas
I’ve worked in the medical administrative field for just over four years. I was drawn to this department for its assistance with uninsured or under-insured patients. Coming from a background in Health and Human Services, I found this to be a good fit because it enables me to continue helping others.
The main advantage I have seen by working directly with Christian Healthcare Ministries is their quick, efficient, and unwavering approach to providing for their members within their health cost sharing program. I’ve found that CHM truly cares about their members and the medical providers taking care of their members.
When interacting with medical providers, members can simply explain that CHM is not insurance: They’re a proven health cost sharing ministry. CHM members are patients who pay the “cash pricing” rates and then submit their medical bills to CHM for quick and expedient reimbursement.
In my experience, CHM follows through with efficient and timely reimbursement to their members, which enables those members to turn around and quickly and expeditiously pay their medical bills.
I have seen CHM and the Provider Relations team work tirelessly to provide the utmost quality assistance for their members by making sure that their members (our patients) obtain the medical services they need and relieving their members’ financial burden.
CHM is an amazing organization that does not require pre-authorization for medical services. I quite often personally recommend health cost sharing to other providers.
