Congratulations on choosing to participate in The Longevity Project!

We are glad you're investing in your long-term health and wellness on the mission field.  Now that you're officially a participant and have paid your annual program fee, you may begin using your grant.

The activation date was July 1, 2023.  Kim (kim@medsend.org) will assist you with connecting to our service providers to set appointments and begin using their services.

The Longevity Project Costs


Here you'll find more details about costs and how to use your grant.  

Our Explore page has all of the details about the costs, your fees and your grant amount based on your unit, or family size.  This is a good reference page when you have questions or need a reminder.

The Extended Debrief, depending on the resource you choose, can be expensive and has an added fee on top of the basic program cost.  This fee is meant to assist or supplement the payment, not cover the entire costs. The recommendation is to plan for or consider an Extended Debrief every four years, unless there is an extenuating circumstance.

For those of you who have attended, a MedRefresh Retreat is an experience like none other!  The recommendation is to plan for you and your family to attend a MedRefresh Retreat every two years.  Our goal is to host one in the United States in the autumn and one in Europe, Middle East or Africa in the Spring.

Below is a guideline for costs through our Service Providers: 

Annual Check-Up with Valeo - 1 assessment is $100

Spiritual Director with Barnabas - 1 session is $75 per hour

Counseling Sessions with Vetting Service Providers - 1 one hour session approximately $100

Parents Membership with TCK Training - within the grant cycle is $108

Fly a Friend of Family Member - up to $2000 for round trip ticket(s) with the grant cycle
