Latinos Provide Medical Care To Church Workers

 SPRINGFIELD, MA - The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) announced today Minister's Med as its newest senior partner. Ministers Med and the NHCLC teamed up today to bring access to healthcare to millions of uninsured church workers.


The relationship brings two valuable assets to NHCLC members, the ability to join into the NHCLC / Minister's Med health plan as a member and for those that are leaders of a church or organization; access to Minister's Med benefits for their workers.


"We are excited to bring access to this cost effective solution to our 30,454 members," states Samuel Rodriguez, President of the NHCLC. "With over 60% of our pastors uninsured this relationship gives them access to healthcare they previously went without."


Minister's Med –"the only healthcare solution for ministries" uses products from Transamerica Life Insurance, an industry leader in providing innovative benefits to workplaces and associations like the NHCLC.


"Minister's Med provides NHCLC member churches the ability to offer healthcare without the barriers of traditional group health insurance," states Peter Lopez, Jr. of Minister's Med. "Our plan gives all church workers access to healthcare – including part time, seasonal workers. It is truly a kingdom benefit."


Minister's Med is a unique blend of benefits that are offered on a Guaranteed Acceptance basis to all members. The policy helps pay basic medical expenses related to hospitalization, with added benefits that cover surgeries, x-rays, prescriptions, accidents and more.



The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference is the Hispanic National Association of Evangelicals unifying, serving and representing the Hispanic Born Again Community via 30,454 member churches and 16 million constituents by reconciling the vertical and horizontal of the Christian Message through the 7 Directives of Life, Family, Great Commission, Stewardship, Justice, Education and Youth.
