Medi-Share is a Christian healthcare sharing program where members pool their financial resources and share the medical expenses of other members. When you join Medi-Share, you select your desired Annual Household Portion (AHP) which works just like a deductible does for traditional insurance. You then make monthly payments that typically cost around 60% less than your premiums would be with normal health insurance.
So long as you’ve paid more than your AHP in the past year, Medi-Share simply pays the bill for you using the monthly shares of other members. If you haven’t yet reached your AHP, then they negotiate the best discount they can and you’re mailed a bill for the rest. Membership is open to Christians who are devoted to living a Christian lifestyle. You will not be quizzed on the bible or asked to prove you attend church. Medi-Share works largely because it is a community of like-minded members with strong Christian values.
Members in a Health Care Sharing Ministry such as Medi-Share are exempt from the individual mandate in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act found in 26 United States Code 5000A(d)(2)(B).
