Liberty HealthShare to Attend Proclaim 17 as a Gold Level Sponsor

Healthcare sharing ministry promoting patient rights and freedom at NRB International Christian Media Convention

Liberty HealthShareORLANDO, Florida (NRB) –  Liberty HealthShare℠, an Ohio-based healthcare sharing ministry, will sponsor and attend Proclaim 17, the NRB International Christian Media Convention being held February 27–March 2. Throughout the course of the event, Executive Director Dale Bellis will address attendees concerning patient rights and freedom and share the latest information about the healthcare sharing movement.

Bellis, himself a frequent guest on Christian radio programs, states the ministry engages in medical cost sharing because it’s “the right thing to do.” He continues, “We are here because our principles of sharing come from a set of shared ethical and religious beliefs held in common across the spectrum. We bear one another’s burdens. We invest our dollars in the lives and needs of one another. We exist for people of like mind and welcome anyone who agrees with our shared beliefs.” Bellis and Liberty HealthShare are grateful for the opportunity to support the important work of the National Religious Broadcasters.

Liberty HealthShare is a health cost sharing ministry of an existing group (Gospel Light Mennonite Church Medical Aid Plan, Inc.) that has been sharing costs since 1995. Through Liberty HealthShare, health cost sharing is currently being used by thousands of families nationwide as an organized means of sharing medical expenses.

The leadership team of Liberty HealthShare was there when the movement began in the early 1980s, and they have nearly 30 years of experience in facilitating cost-sharing. They now lend their expertise to bring the same cost-sharing methods enjoyed by thousands of Christian families to like-minded individuals everywhere. Through Liberty HealthShare, the opportunity to share medical expenses is open to anyone who subscribes to the ministry’s Shared Beliefs.
