Boiled down, medical cost sharing, or health sharing ministries, are a group of like-minded individuals that agree to come together and help each other pay their medical expenses. They offer faith-based programs for planning for unforeseen medical expenses.
Health care sharing is a way that people are paying for their health care without using health insurance. When they have a medical need, members receive support from other members and pay their health care providers directly.
As a HealthShare member, you are part of a community of both fellow members and ministry staff who care. Joining a HealthShare connects you with people all over the country who have chosen to help one another in times of need as self-pay patients voluntarily sharing medical costs together.
