Medi-Share Health Insurance is one option that complies with the Obamacare Affordable Care Act for 2014.
Are you covered by Health Insurance? It’s the law, at least it will be in 2014.
Tony Meggs is the President and CEO of Christian Care Ministries. He shares with us the way Medi-Share works and how it complies with the Affordable Care Act.

Good stuff Steve!
I have already passed this info on to our pastor & I’ll be passing it on later on today on my Facebook page.
Thanks for all you do!
Steve Stewart says
That’s great Keith! Let me know what happens.
Medi-share is indeed a unique program for providing assistance with medical care, but unlike health insurance programs this route uses blatant discrimination to prevent certain individuals from benefiting from its service. Mychristiancare.org specifically points out that only those engaging in sexual intercourse within a “Christian” marriage are allowed to join. This immediately eliminates gay, lesbian, and transgender individuals from enrolling in Medi-share. The program also places limits on services it covers based upon religious beliefs and states specifically that abortions will not be covered under any circumstance.
To be clear, Medi-share is not an insurance program. Medi-share operates as a non-profit group and while members pay into a group fund each month, the money is never Medi-share’s money. Furthermore, Medi-share is not required to pay any bill, nor keep cash reserves on hand.REF:http://www.newsonhealthcare.com/how-does-medishare-work/
Steve Stewart says
Exactly Simon. Medi-share is not an insurance program but it is an approved option under the Obamacare (or is it Obamatax?). We covered some of this in the interview but you pointed to some of the specific traits that makes Medi-share different.
Yes, glbt’s would not fit into their program. Medi-share serves a specific group of people who live by a specific set of rules. I guess we could call it discriminatory although it could also be called a guideline for qualifying people who fit their guidelines.
Thanks for the link. I hope my interview and your comment will further educate my readers/listeners about Medi-Share.
