The Affordable Care Act contains a special provision for members of Healthcare Sharing Ministries, making Medi-Share members exempt from the mandate to purchase insurance in 2014 or face financial penalties. Law Language – (Sec 1501, page 148 addresses the exemption)
Proven. Medi-Share is a healthcare sharing program where Christians share financial resources to pay each other’s medical expenses. Since 1993, over $875 million has been shared and discounted among Medi-Share members. It’s a proven biblical model of healthcare–Christians helping Christians.
Sensible Stewardship. Medi-Share gives Christians the assurance that their healthcare dollars are helping fellow believers who are living God-honoring lifestyles, based on biblical principles and service to others. With options that fit every budget, and even an incentive available for our healthier members, Medi-Share is sensible stewardship for Christians who don’t want to be left alone to pay their medical bills.
Ministry. Christian Care Ministry is a not-for-profit ministry where the members make the rules–and their dollars don’t support unbiblical choices such as abortion, or drug or alcohol abuse.
Medi-Share is NOT INSURANCE. It’s a New Testament way of thinking about healthcare, built on the principles of Christians bearing each other’s burdens. For over 20 years, Medi-Share members have been faithfully sharing each other’s medical bills, trusting the Lord to provide in their time of need through the voluntary gifts of other believers.
It’s Christians Helping Christians—and It Works!
