A 2011 survey found 8 out of 10 Christians are unaware of health sharing ― an alternative to health insurance. CCHF has long been talking about health sharing, including on radio interviews and in our new “Legal Alternatives” flier, which lists it as one of nine exemptions to the ObamaCare insurance mandate. Interest is growing. Since open enrollment began, Medi-Share had more than 23,000 people asking for information in October alone, and 2,108 people joined. Samaritan Ministries, which routinely shares about $6 million in medical needs each month, received 754 new household enrollments in October, which added up to 2,483 individuals. Medical sharing is far less expensive than health insurance and exceedingly more personal. Read our 2010 report on health sharing. See comparison chart for two of the three ministries.
