We’re talking with Dale Bellis, the Executive Director of Liberty Health Share. It is a medical cost sharing system. It is not health insurance. But it is available under the Affordable Care Act. Dale hits on a couple of things here. First, he tells me that members of Liberty Health Share get a say in how medical costs are shared. And second, he describes how that happened as members wanted a different way to calculate the initial unshared amount or what the insurance industry calls a deductible, your out of pocket expenses.
SOT MASTER 07:41-09:35 “Every year we collect this input from our members.
Those initial unshared amounts, again like insurance deductibles, in other words what you pay before sharing begins, are 500-dollars for an individual, 1-thousand dollars per couple, and 15-hundred per family per year. There’s plenty more information on Initial Unshared Amount. Go to liberty health share dot-org slash John Daly.
