Christian Healthcare Ministries

christian healthcare ministriesMy husband and I created this blog to further inform other Christians who may be considering to get a Christian Healthcare Ministries sharing type health coverage.

Considering the recent news and changes in the health care world, things can be overwhelming to say the least!

We had a baby girl, Sophia, and used Christian Healthcare Ministries the entire duration.

We can first hand vouch for the excellent support, payment response time and coverage with Christian Healthcare Ministries.

One of the best things we like about Christian Healthcare Ministries is the ability to choose which ever doctor you like. Most traditional health insurances are so limiting in regards to which doctor you can see and also when! Christian Healthcare Ministries gives us so much more flexibility. Traditional health insurance is so managed and limiting that it can really be annoying.

CHM has three different coverage options you can choose from. There is such great flexibility and choice which is great!

We have been members of CHM for over 5 years and have had excellent results and would recommend their services to anyone. We have referred several satisfied friends and family to CHM over the years.

Feel free to make any comments or post any question you have below and we’ll be happy to respond.

Another great incentive Christian Healthcare Ministries offers is their referral program. CHM will give you a complimentary month’s coverage if you refer someone into the ministry.

If you are going to sign up with Christian Healthcare Ministries, we would be very grateful if you could use our name and ID as your referral. Our family would be most appreciative!

Thank you and God Bless!

New baby on the way!

That’s right! We just got news that our daughter Sophia is going to be a big sister!

We’re glad that we have the Christian Healthcare Ministries plan once again as we embark on another journey with our new baby. We sure are glad to have maternity coverage on our plan with Christian Healthcare Ministries. Our baby is due in the spring so we’ll have the winter to prepare.

Thanks again for checking out our review of Christian Healthcare Ministries. I’m sure we’ll have great support from them as we did with our first baby.

That’s right, you heard it…Sophia now has a baby sister – Charlotte Rose! She was born naturally and healthy in our local hospital. Once again, Christian Healthcare Ministries was there the entire duration. For those of you who many be new to Christian Healthcare Ministries, let us give you some tips if you are planning to have a baby and use the maternity coverage of CHM.Christian Healthcare Ministries
We would recommend switching to the GOLD coverage. There have been a few changes in Christian Healthcare Ministries since our 1st child that we learned about. Basically, the GOLD plan will cover everything in regards to the delivery from start to finish. The GOLD plan will also give you much more flexibility in regards to where you seek healthcare and who you want to use. The Silver and Bronze will only cover your bills that are services rendered in the hospital. This is something to take note of.
In addition, if you do decide to switch plans, be sure you switch ahead of time. Christian Healthcare Ministries will make changes effective the 1st of the following month you request the change in plan. So be sure your ‘conception’ date is within the month you have the coverage you so desire.
We would recommend you speak with a representative from Christian Healthcare Ministries to answer any questions you my have regarding the maternity coverage.

What is Nurse Healthcare All About?

By Karen P Williams

Nurses can rightfully be considered as the main driving force of the healthcare industry around the world. Nurses and healthcare are two words that become almost meaningless without one another. In an everyday life that a nurse spends in a medical facility, he or she plays many roles. The nurse healthcare sector is totally depended on doctors. The doctors are in charge of directing and guiding the nurses, and everything that a nurse does, has to be reported to the doctor. These include providing medications and assistance to patients as well as keeping the doctor updated on any improvements or issues regarding the health of the patient. A nurse who is very alert and responsible during his or her duty hours can be of valuable help, both to the patients and the doctor.

One of the most important and responsible duty of any nurse is to carefully see and check if all the patients have been closely examined or not. After a patient is admitted to the hospital and is placed under observation, a nurse is assigned for regular care of the patient. The nurse has to take care of the physical condition of the patient and note down any changes in the physical or emotional behavior of the patient. Technically, it is now up to the nurse to chalk out a care plan for the patient and make sure that is executed to the minutest detail.

The nurses in the nurse healthcare industry play a very important role in the professional life of the doctor, too. Since it is the nurse’s job to note down every significant detail of the patient, the medications that are being administered to the patient and also the reactions to the medications, they can be considered as the virtual eyes and ears of the doctor. Doctors heavily rely on the data that has been filled by nurses to continue the course of medications. It can be safely said that a nurse, even though under the directives of a doctor, is completely responsible for the cure and well being of a patient. If it weren’t for the nurses, it would have become very difficult for the doctors to run any kind of medical facilities.

Majority of the people think that nursing only involves treating the patient with medications. They, however, tend to forget that it is these nurses who have to explain to the patient about the treatment that he is receiving and about the medications that he or she is given. They also have to keep a check on the emotional behavior of the patient. A nurse has to be patient like a teacher. It can be said that, to an extent, teaching also becomes a part of nursing.

There are many exciting career options for people who have gained experience in the nursing field. Take for example, traveling. If you are a nurse and love traveling, you could choose to be a traveling nurse. Or, if you have planned to join the military, you could become a military nurse. Also, if forensic sciences interest you, you could go in for forensic nursing.

CNA Healthcare

CNA Healthcare

By Karen P Williams

CNA Healthcare

CNA and healthcare are two terms that are inseparable. Healthcare is incomplete without CNA. A Certified Nursing Assistant, is regarded as the most important connection between a patient and a doctor or a nurse because, they are the ones who work under the guidance of licensed nurses or registered nurses and provide assistance to the disabled and elderly patients by helping them in their daily activities such as dressing up, taking bath, toileting, etc. They are also responsible for replacing the dressing on the wounds, helping with the medication, taking vital stats, etc. They even take the responsibility of helping patients with their walk, assisting the patients in moving from beds to chairs. CNA is also responsible for assisting the patients with activities related to personal hygiene, such as shaving beards, brushing teeth, brushing hair and soaking dentures, etc.

A CNA is probably the person who first notices any vital changes in a patient and duly informs the doctor or patient, when required. Hence, they are usually considered as the ears and eyes of a nurse or a doctor. They are also referred to as nursing aides.

Though the job of a CNA looks simple, in reality, it is a demanding job, one that requires a nursing aide to be responsible, friendly, pleasant, easy to approach and trustworthy. A CNA needs to be physically fit, as they will be working with patient and might have to lift them, when required. The more patient and friendly a CNA is, the more is the ease, with which they can render their services to any age group patient, right from a child to an elderly person.

To take up a career as a CNA, you need to undergo a training program and have to clear a skills test sponsored by the respective states. Most of the nursing aides consider CNA to be the first step towards a secure career in healthcare.

Once you start your career as a CNA and continue your education, in about an year, you can try to become a LPN (licensed practical nurse) or if you are willing to take up higher level education, in three or four years, you can become a registered nurse. On an average, a CNA can earn up to $27,418 annually.

Similar to the current shortage in qualified nurses, there is expected to be a huge shortage of CNAs in the near future, owing to the growing population and the increasing number of people in the older age group.

A CNA can find employment in healthcare facilities, hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and at times even in a patient’s home. Irrespective of the location of employment, the responsibilities and duties of a nursing aide are usually the same. There is a growing need for qualified CNAs since it is an integral and important part of the healthcare. Though CNA is probably the lowest level in healthcare pyramid, it is the basic building block, without which the pyramid might not have a solid foundation. CNA and healthcare are intertwined, you can never separate them!!
