Christian Care Ministry aide members in healthy, biblical living through its Medi-Share program.
Medi-Share—Healthcare Sharing Program
- Medi-Share is a member-based, healthcare-sharing program in which Christians voluntarily and directly share financial resources to pay one another's medical expenses. Medi-Share is not health insurance; so neither Medi-Share nor its members have a legal obligation to pay another member’s medical expenses. However, since its inception in 1993, members have faithfully shared their resources to pay all eligible medical expenses.
- Medi-Share members are exempt from the individual mandate to purchase health insurance as outlined in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (or Healthcare Law). Medi-Share members are in compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (or Healthcare Law) and do not have to purchase insurance or face financial penalties.
- Medi-Share is not for everyone. It is for people who agree on a specific set of biblical values and lifestyle behaviors.
More than five decades ago, the founding members of Christian Care Ministry began sharing medical bills on an informal basis with a small group of people. In 1993, Christian Care Ministry was officially established after years of seeing that the model was successful and the need was great.
