2018 Wide Horizon Annual Meeting

Date: Sunday, October 21, 2018 Time: 2:00 to 4:00 PM Location: Wide Horizon (8900 W 38th Avenue Wheat Ridge, CO 80033)
Keynote Speaker: Kate Mullane Robertson, C.S., Buena Vista, Colorado Theme: “Christian Science Nursing within the Structure of Truth and Love”


PUBLIC NOTICE – “VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL” FROM MEDICARE

Wide Horizon, Inc., located at 8900 West 38th Avenue in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, submitted CMS Form 855A on June 8, 2018, to apply for “voluntary withdrawal” from Medicare.

Wide Horizon, federally recognized as a Religious Non-medical Health Care Institution since 1974, has requested a “termination date” of July 1, 2018 from the Medicare program.

This decision by the Board of Directors of Wide Horizon has been made after years of thoughtful discussion and deliberation regarding the clear contrast of the theology of Christian Science to the medical model of the Medicare system. It was therefore determined that Wide Horizon, as a Christian Science nursing care organization, does not truly fit within the Medicare provider model. The Wide Horizon Board strongly believes this progressive step is in full support of Christian Science nursing.

Please note that Wide Horizon, which is annually licensed by the State of Colorado as a “Nursing Care Facility,” will continue providing without interruption all other Christian Science nursing care services.

For all Christian Scientists and others in the public who may wish to utilize the services of Wide Horizon and may have need of financial support to receive Christian Science nursing, inquiries for financial assistance will be directed to the National Fund for Christian Science Nursing via email at info@nfcsn.org or its website at www.nfcsn.org or by phone at 800-873-2843.

If there are questions regarding this public notice, the public may also contact Wide Horizon via email info@widehorizon.org or website www.widehorizon.org or phone to D. Brian Boettiger, Executive Director/CEO at 303-424-4445, ext. 3040.

“The ancient Christians were healers. Why has this element of Christianity been lost? Because our systems of religion are governed more or less by our systems of medicine.”
