Churches and pastors looking for budget-minded health care coverage as well as protection for their employees and their families have another option to consider coming this summer.
GuideStone Financial Resources, the financial services entity of the Southern Baptist Convention, will roll out its new GuideStone Secure Health plan during the June 12-13 SBC annual meeting in Dallas, with enrollment to begin July 1.
“We hear daily from pastors and other church leaders who feel the tension between wanting to do right by their employees while also being responsible to their budget,” said O.S. Hawkins, president of GuideStone, which is marking its 100th anniversary in 2018. “With Secure Health we wanted an option that provided lower-cost coverage and protection for church employees as well as their families.”
Under the new Secure Health plan, eligible participants still have access to the nationwide Blue Cross Blue Shield network. Primary care visits and Teladoc consultations are available at no out-of-pocket charge. Some care — such as out-of-network service — is not covered. Before enrolling in the plan, participants are encouraged to review their health coverage needs to see if GuideStone’s Secure Health is the appropriate coverage choice.
