The Affordable Care Act includes a special provision for members of Healthcare Sharing Ministries, so Medi-Share members are exempt from the mandate to purchase insurance or face financial penalties. You can review the details of the Affordable Care Act in Section 1501, page 148.
If the federal healthcare reform laws have you seeking a wise and God-honoring choice for your healthcare, you’ll find it in Medi-Share. Unlike health insurance where you pay a premium to a company, Medi-Share is a community of Christians who share each other’s medical bills. Your share dollars are never used for unbiblical procedures or treatments like abortion or the morning after pill. And you know your share is going directly to help a fellow member with an eligible medical bill.
