    One of our guys just jumped on Medi-Share and has written a couple pieces about his experience so far. And, so far, so good.

    Seems like a great replacement for those who don’t have pre-existing conditions and don’t have a lot of other options.

      Thanks for sharing that experience, Aaron. I’ve been tempted to have our family switch as well, but need to keep hearing positive reports from others!
