What Medicare Sharing Members Need To Know

June 14th, 2021

At Liberty HealthShare, we believe that your health journey isn’t just meant for when you are young. We are here to support you in all stages of your health journey, including when you reach Medicare age. Our healthsharing community welcomes our members who are enrolled in Medicare.

For those who aren’t familiar, Medicare is a national health insurance program for people who are 65 years or older. Once you begin receiving Medicare, you may continue with your Liberty HealthShare program. For our members who receive Medicare, once an eligible medical expense has been submitted and processed by Medicare, any remaining balance may be submitted to your sharing community for sharing.

If a member is over 65 and does not take Medicare (other than opting out for religious reasons), and submits an eligible expense, then only the amount Medicare would NOT have paid, is eligible for sharing. Since Medicare typically pays 80%, only 20% would be eligible for sharing.

Supporting one another is vital to our sharing community. If you have questions regarding Medicare or your sharing program, reach out to us by phone or email us at info@libertyhealthshare.org and we will be happy to help answer your questions.
