Christians Are Exempt From Insurance Mandates
That's right, Christian members of healthcare sharing ministries will not face the penalties and taxes that other Americans will be forced to pay if they do not have health insurance by 2014.
On March 22, 2010 President Obama signed into law legislation that requires most Americans to purchase government regulated health insurance by the year 2014. In June of 2012, the Supreme Court upheld the law.
We are grateful that the law gives Christians who participate in Health Care Sharing Ministries a special exemption from the mandate to purchase insurance. More importantly, we thank God for His protection and favor on our Ministry and the continued opportunity to serve one another.
Health Care Sharing Ministries are the only “organized healthcare concept” to receive a special exemption from the taxes, penalties and regulations that are a part of this law, as these apply to insurance companies.
Medi-Share members are exempt from the “individual mandate” that will require all other Americans to purchase insurance by 2014 or face financial penalties. (page 107 & 128 of the final law).
Healthcare Costs Expected To Rise
Our economy is bad enough and according to recent studies, private health insurance premiums will rise by 40% over the next three years. Christians everywhere are already looking at their finances and wondering, "How am I going to be able to afford decent healthcare?"
Since 1993, Medi-Share members have saved more than $700 Million in healthcare expenses through sharing and discounting. But best of all, Medi-Share offers a true community of shared commitment to biblical values!
