Christian Healthcare Ministries: What did you name your son and when was he born?

Laura Willis: Isaiah Willis was born January 24, 2013.

CHM: What motivated you to join CHM?

LW: We had been thinking about joining CHM for several years, but were hesitant. With a husband in full-time ministry, purchasing private insurance became nearly impossible. We got to a point where we just couldn’t afford it anymore. We liked that CHM included maternity. We had never had that before because traditional insurance costs for maternity riders were astronomical.

CHM: Were there any complications during your pregnancy?

LW: When I first found out I was pregnant, the doctors thought I had miscarried. In case I hadn’t, they placed me on special medication to help prevent one. CHM staff members called and prayed for me throughout my pregnancy. It was such a blessing to know they were praying for me.

CHM: What was the cost of your pregnancy?

LW: My pregnancy and delivery cost approximately $17,500. After about $3,100 in discounts, CHM shared the remaining bills and we were able to pay our providers in full within two months of delivery.

CHM: What else would you like to say about your experience?

LW: Being in ministry is hard enough without the stress of costly health care. In fact, most churches don’t offer benefits, and private health care is costly. We are so thankful for CHM and what it has done for our family. We look forward to being a part of this wonderful organization for many years to come.
