Dear Member,

Our association is always looking for ways to better serve our member organizations and help them save money—and we recently found a huge opportunity that can do both! PLEASE READ THIS LETTER AND THE ACCOMPANYING PAGES CAREFULLY.

One significant threat facing ministry organizations is the relentless climb of healthcare costs. In recent months, we’ve heard from a number of members who’ve seen premium renewals rise 20, 30, even 40 percent. This is unsustainable for ministries that rely so heavily on donations.

Our member ministries in the U.S. employ some 12,000 people nationally, but until recently, certain restrictions have not allowed us to leverage this volume to obtain better, more affordable health insurance for missions, leaving us all with shared challenges:

  • Little control of plan design
  • Enormous rate increases
  • Misaligned financial incentives
  • Moral objections
  • Limited access to reporting and risk management assets

So, over the last six months, we’ve been able to pull together best-in-class tools and innovative, industry-leading partners to design for our members an excellent, sustainable, competitive health-benefits program that exemplifies quality and sound stewardship.

This is not a medical cost-sharing type program. This is a real insurance program with highly respected, nationally known players.

Members who have been brought in to see what this is about are energized and already projecting savings in the range of $10,000 to $300,000, but beyond that, we envision a program that promotes good health, boosts morale, and channels more resources toward life transformation.

As you peruse this information and make healthcare choices, know that you were front-and-center in our minds throughout the development of this program. As always, your association is here for you, cheering for you, and praying for you.

Yours for abundant life,

John Ashmen
President
