TEMPE, Ariz., April 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Solidarity HealthShare is proud to announce the introduction of the SOLIDARITY CARE CARD™ providing members expanded services and savings on dental, vision, prescription and telehealth services.
Solidarity is constantly searching for the best free-market solutions for its members. Through Solidarity's partnership with Careington, the SOLIDARITY CARE CARD™ offers the best discounted prices on prescription, dental, and vision services. Our Care Card also provides access to a new telehealth service allowing members quick treatment for non-emergency illnesses. Doctors are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
"Utilizing the Telehealth service is a huge benefit for our members. It gives them direct access to state-licensed, fully-credentialed doctors via phone or video consultations to receive treatments and advice for common ailments and non-urgent medical care," said Solidarity HealthShare Chief Medical Officer, Dr. John Oertle.
"This service also protects the sharing power of the ministry, which is the total dollar amount available for sharing in the medical expenses of our members. It is important that our sharing power be used in the most effective ways, keeping monthly contributions low," said Solidarity HealthShare COO, Chris Faddis.
For 40 years Careington International Corporation has been a leading provider of discount programs for dental and other health, wellness and lifestyle services.
"Careington is a wonderful addition to our Solidarity HealthShare family with a proven record as a responsive, solutions-driven company motivated by the people they serve. It delivers products and services focused on individual health and well-being," said Bradley Hahn, J.D., Solidarity HealthShare, CEO.
Members access the provider search page to review a directory of participating providers, schedule an appointment and show their SOLIDARITY CARE CARD™ when paying at the time of service.

Our mission is to restore and rebuild an authentic Catholic healthcare culture that promotes the sanctity of all human life, while facilitating the sharing of our members' medical expenses.
