While I might not have quite that turn of phrase, after reading the disclaimers that brewer cites to, the phrase that comes to my
mind is penny wise, pound foolish. I certainly understand the desire to save money on insurance, I question highly that not having insurance is the way to go. The voluntary nature of Medi-share wouldn't leave me feeling very confident. What if you have some serious health event that costs huge amounts of money? You have no
guarantee it would be paid since payment is apparently voluntary.
Also, do you get physician and hospital discounts with Medi-share. With the PPO I use, discounts are often as much as 90% off the published rates. If you don't get discounts with Medi-share even minor events can end up costing thousands. Now, maybe you do get discounts with it some places (I don't know) but that is definitely something to look into.
