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.
