(Washington, D.C.) America’s Moms are coming to the forefront to speak out against Obamacare. The Affordable Care Act has crippled the American family. It’s creating additional financial stress on the already restricted budgets for the middle working class and low-income mothers. Solidarity HealthShare is meeting with Congressional officials today, December 13 and Thursday, December 14, 2017 to educate Congress about health shares, price transparency and conscience protection for our nation’s household.
Solidarity Healthshare is concerned about the welfare of our nation’s mothers, single mother’s, and the working class poor. “Americans that have been swallowed by the financial crisis of the Affordable Care Act,Solidarity HealthShare comes alongside of the middle class working Americans to offer a solution to rising health care costs…” stated Bradley Hahn, CEO

The Hill quoted Sen. John Barrasso “Families ought to be able to make decisions about what they want to buy and what works for them –not the government,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) “I believe if people don’t want to buy the Obamacare insurance, they shouldn’t have to pay a tax penalty to the IRS.”

Today, families worry about the increased cost of health insurance. Most working middle-class families need multiple forms of employment to pay for health insurance. Solidarity HealthShare comes along side of their members and intercedes with providers and hospitals for repricing. Solidarity Healthshare advocates on their members’ behalf and decreases the medical costs by their repricing.

As we are focused on our families this Christmas season, Solidarity HealthShare is featuring their Stories of Hope, Moms of Solidarity with Kellie Soper. Her story was devastating and heartbreaking, but what Solidarity HealthShare provided for Kellie and her family was a health share community, peace of mind, stress-free environment and the choice of their own doctors.

“A Mother’s role is to put her family at the forefront of the care of their families. Solidarity puts family first. It’s a sense of peace to never have to hear in network or out network again.”  stated Kellie Soper, Moms of Solidarity

The Soper family’s daughter Lily passed away before she was born at 42 weeks. Lily was born sleeping. Eight months after their daughters birth the billing from the insurance companies was more than $6,000. The Soper’s insurance company at the time of the loss gave up on the Soper Family because they didn’t want to cover the high costs of the loss of their child.

Solidarity Healthshare’s quality care is recognized for their transparent pricing and referenced base pricing, to keep the medical cost low. Solidarity continues to focus their attention on helping America’s Moms, mental health, single families, the working middle class and low-income families.

“SOLE SURVIVOR”, HOLLY K. DUNN’S FRIENDS AND FAMILY SPEAK OUT 

“Something I remember most about that time was the story Holly told a few days later when we finally got to be with her. She calmly, candidly walked through each event the night of the attack. She was wearing khaki shorts and Birkenstock clog sandals—the kind that just slip on your feet, no straps. Following the attack, Ramirez left her for dead. She remembers the sensation of being covered up with leaves. The next thing she remembers is pounding on the front door of a house asking for help. She was bloodied, battered and barely lucid—the guy answered the door, called the police and tried to keep her from passing out before EMS could arrive. The house she ran to was at least two football fields away from the attack site. She had to cross two sets of railroad tracks, gravel, dirt glass, debris, etc. When she arrived at the house to beg for help she had no shoes on. There was not one scratch, one bruise, any dirt, etc. on her feet. She said, “I know God was with me. I know Chris was with me. I know an angel carried me to that house, and that’s why I’m still here.” I will never forget that moment—at a time when you could be so angry and question faith, she found the beauty and resolve in it instead. She renewed my faith and my relationship with God as well. We can’t do this life alone. We have to keep faith.” Lottie C. Stockwell (friend of Holly K. Dunn)
