When Peggy first heard of Liberty HealthShare, she was skeptical.
However, following an incident that left her with a fractured shoulder Peggy soon found out the benefit of being a Liberty HealthShare member.
While ice-skating at her granddaughter’s 7th birthday party, Peggy took a tumble face first onto the ice. The fall caused her arm from her shoulder to her elbow to turn black and blue.
“It all happened so fast, I didn’t even let go of my granddaughter’s hand. Both of my hands were in the air and I came down. I hit my left knee and hit my chest and shoulders.”
She had started to feel better after a couple of days thinking that maybe she had only bruised it. After a visit to her doctor though, he confirmed that sure enough she had fractured her shoulder.
Being used to traditional insurance, she was nervous the first time she handed her Liberty HealthShare card to her doctor’s office. “I was wondering what would happen once I used the card. I had kind of explained to the nurse how it worked and then she took down the cards information.”
Although the function of a health share plan was new to the nurse, she sent it to the billing department for processing.
“They didn’t have a problem taking it at all; I thought ‘Oh wow, this is nice’!” After Peggy’s second visit, her experience was even better. She went in for another x-ray, handing the card to the nurse who took it and handed her everything she needed to go in. Without any questions.
“It was so easy, and the perfect experience. I couldn’t have asked for things to have gone smoother!”
