Healthcare Co-ops Christian Alternative to Obamacare

Ad Feedback

Christians looking for health coverage can skip Obamacare if they have religious objections to buying insurance that covers abortions. But they have to sign up for an alternative, like a health care sharing ministry.
The Affordable Care Act exempts anyone who participates in one of those types of groups.

Health care sharing is not medical insurance. But it does involve like-minded people helping to pay each other's medical costs.

At least three established ministries fit the law's requirements: Medi-Share, Samaritan Ministries and Christian Healthcare Ministries.

Health sharing ministries typically require Christians to sign a statement of faith in Jesus Christ and pledge to live by biblical standards.

For example they must agree not to abuse alcohol or other drugs, and not to have sex outside of a Christian marriage.
