Earlier this year my wife was diagnosed with lung cancer. At the time we were working with World Relief, the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals, in Burundi, one of the poorest countries in the world with virtually no modern medical personnel or facilities. Thanks to World Relief’s excellent insurance plan, my wife was able to get first-class treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. She is now well on the road to recovery. The list price for her surgery and care came to over $60,000, but this was heavily discounted by the PPO network agreement, and after insurance reimbursement our out-of-pocket costs were less than $2,000.
