IN ASSOCIATION WITH
- CONNECT with a community of individuals and healthcare providers that have the freedom to help and support each other. Your doctor is invited to participate as well.
- SHARE: Member driven, not profit driven. You become a wise and educated healthcare consumer. Your monthly share amount goes to you or another member in need. The program meets your healthcare needs under the Sharing Guidelines and pays your healthcare costs through sharing contributions by other members.
- RECEIVE the best tools and information available to maintain or regain you health and obtain medical care through providers, facilities and treatments that best suit your needs.
According to the Mayo Clinic, complementary and alternative medicine (the preferred term is "complementary and integrative health") has never been more popular. Nearly 40% of adults report using these types of treatments, but these usually have not been covered by ACA plans. However, the health sharing portion of Health Excellence Select considers many of these techniques as eligible medical expenses if the provider submits a treatment plan that is approved by the health sharing organization and accepted by the member.
The list of services and modalities considered for sharing is regularly expanding. While we recognize this is not yet an ideal solution, the Holistic Chamber of Commerce is encouraged and also impressed that the program focuses on prevention and living a healthy lifestyle. Accordingly, we've partnered with Health Excellence Select to
- offer this program to our members, friends, and fans;
- help our eligible members get approved as accepting providers;
- indicate on our membership list if a member is an accepting provider;
- develop marketing materials to help these providers grow and expand their practices; and
- work with Health Excellence Select to develop additional holistic programming and offer resources from accepting provider Chamber members for use on the Health Excellence Select website.
There's no perfect solution for everyone. It's important to understand that health sharing is NOT insurance and is NOT government regulated--either by the federal government or by state departments of insurance, or state departments of consumer affairs. It IS recognized as being exempt from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and is NOT subject to the tax penalties you would pay for not enrolling in an ACA plan.
There is no defined enrollment period for the program: individuals can apply any time during the year (i.e. open and special enrollment periods do not apply as they do for ACA plans).
Without compromising the quality of the healthcare services you receive, Health Excellence Select teaches you to become an educated health care consumer and to competitively shop for healthcare services.
