AlieraCare offering by Unity Healthshare, LLC, through Aliera Healthcare, Inc., is a faith-based medical needs sharing membership. Medical needs are only shared by the members according to the membership guidelines. Our members
agree to the Statement of Beliefs and voluntarily submit monthly contributions into a cost sharing account with Unity Healthshare, LLC, acting as a neutral clearing house between members. Organizations like ours have been operating successfully for years.
We are including the following caveat for all to consider:
This publication or membership is not issued by an insurance company, nor is it offered through an insurance company. This publication or the membership does not guarantee or promise that your eligible medical needs will be shared by the membership. This publication or the membership should never be considered as a substitute for an insurance policy. If the publication or the membership is unable to share in all or part of your eligible medical needs, or whether or not this membership continues to operate, you will remain financially liable for any and all unpaid medical needs.
This is not a legally binding agreement to reimburse any member for medical needs a member may incur, but is instead, an opportunity for members to care for one another in a time of need, to present their medical needs to other members as outlined in the membership guidelines. The financial assistance members receive will come from other members’ monthly contributions that are placed in a sharing account, not from Unity Healthshare, LLC. Aliera Health *
