    Medi-Share is a VERY intense christian organization. I work with a company called Aliera they're not nearly as preachy and strict. And they use PHCS Multi-Plan so MD Anderson is in there. What I run in to in Texas is that most providers won't take ACA plans, so this is a good alternative for people.

    Isn't the bottom line that if you get sick or injured, lots of people send you money and hopefully you have enough to pay the bill?

    Due to Obamacare, there seems to be quite a few of those that have sprung up and they vary greatly in how they handle medical claims.

    I read the other day where One requires you to go to church at least once a month. And the pastor has to sign off that you attended.

    Some of the Pitfalls to Christian Sharing Models

    Membership in a Christian Sharing Ministry is not insurance or a “fully insured” product, therefore there is no protection or oversight from State Insurance Departments.

    Since it is not an insurance product, it is not covered by any State Insurance Guarantee Fund.

    Because it is not an insurance product, and not governed by any federal regulatory agency, any complaints filed against it more than likely will go unheard or unresolved.

    Since it is not “fully insured,” If claims exceed premiums, certain individual’s claims may not get paid or may be partially paid until such time as when premiums paid in exceed existing claims.

    Right now this is where the low hanging fruit is in the under 65 market so a lot of agents are gravitating toward these Christian Sharing Models. They can pack on the ancillary products and make a huge commission. Transparency and full disclosure, what''s that?
