Defining a “Need” and how it works
A “Need” is one or more medical expenses
caused by a SINGLE accident or illness
Initial Unshared Amount (IUA)

Needs over the IUA ($500, $1000, $1500,

Fully Shared with the Community
Three (3) for Individual and five (5) when there are
family members participating. Everything is fully
shareable after that point.
Medical Cost Sharing in Real Life
Comparing $5000/Family Member Insurance Deductible vs a $500 Initial Unshareable Amount
For Example, a family’s two year old
daughter had a persistent ear infection.
Their deductible was $5,000/per family
Care for the child required:
1. A series of antibiotics and booster
2. Visit with an ENT specialist who
inserted tubes in the child’s ear at
a local hospital
Cost of an average family insurance policy with a primary of 45 and a $5000
deductible is $1450.00 per month, a $500 IUA healthy care strategy is $783.00/mn
Medical Cost Sharing in Real Life (continued)
Members pay for visits and treatments up to the IUA, costs are fully shared thereafter.
