What Do You Know About Christian Healthcare Ministries as a Solution to the Health Insurance Problem? (Dec. 30 Update)
Many of you know that ACA cancelled my family’s private insurance. New Obamacare insurance would cost us several hundred dollars more a month, increasing our premiums by 150%. It would also dramatically increase our deductible by 150%, but paying the massive premium increase would mean we had no money in the budget left over to pay actual medical bills. To afford healthcare insurance we would have to not afford healthcare. We have been a little desperate.
We’ve prayed and researched. We think we’ve found a solution. We’re joining a Christian healthcare ministry (also known as a healthcare sharing group). Specifically we’re joining the Christian Healthcare Ministries.
I know many families are looking pretty hard at their healthcare situation right now. This post is about what I think is a decent option for Mormons and others. I hope it helps anyone who is looking for an out from a bad insurance situation. Please share it with anyone who might benefit.
At the same time, this post is a request for anybody who knows anything about Christian healthcare ministries to share what they know. If you have had a good or a bad experience with a healthcare ministry or sharing organization, please tell us about it in the comments. I and others who read this would benefit. The more information the better.
