Are you planning to work in the mission field long term, 6 months or longer? Taking a sebatical and going to Managua for a few years to go on a medical mission? Working in Haiti at an orphanage? Helping the less fortunate on the continent of Africa? While wanting to take care of others is admirable, don't leave yourself or your families health to chance while abroad being sure to take care of your own as well. While you may think health care is substandard in many third world countries around the globe, you might be surpised at the level of care available, typically only in private hospitals that cater to expatriates. Regardless, you want to have major medical insurance that will cover you there and back home in the USA, should you need to come home for further treatment or while back on furlough. There are many great programs available on this page and we recommend the GeoBlue Navigator for Missionaries along with IMGs GMMI plan, both being staples for many decades in the missionary insurance marketplace and covering hundreds of thousands of missionaries and their families.
Common features: Mission medical plans typically cover of course illness, accidents, sickness, emergency room, emergency medical evacuation/ repatriation along with being annually renewable for life (with some exceptions), covering maternity and newborn, wellness of adult and child, dental / vision, AD&D or Term Life insurance and many other add on benefits. All of these plans are medically underwritten and require answering health / medical questions about each applicant.
Commons Uses: Individual or families that are relocating abroad to live or work in the missions field for 6 months to a year or longer; missionaries or NGO / AidWorkers abroad in the field
Medi-Share is not insurance nor can it be used outside the United States.
Medi-Share is a healthcare sharing ministry founded on the belief that there is a BETTER way… a Biblical way, to take care of your healthcare. A way that focuses on people, NOT profit. A way that inspires you to live a healthier lifestyle so you can fulfill the plan God has for you. We are passionate about saving you money so you can use those funds to support your family and further kingdom work.
Medi-Share is an organized way in which Christians share their money to pay for each other’s eligible medical bills.
But wait, there’s more. Your Medi-Share membership also gives you zero cost 24/7 access to telehealth providers and dental and vision discounts.
