Ky. Senate Approves Bill to Legalize Medi-Share

Ad Feedback

The Kentucky Senate passed a measure allowing a Christian health care group to once again do business in the state.

Last year, a state judge ordered Medi-Share to cease operations at the request of the Department of Insurance. State officials said the Florida-based cost-sharing ministry didn't comply with regulations.

Medi-Share participants contribute to a pool and the funds can be used to cover each other's health care costs. But it only allows people to participate who live a Christian lifestyle and pledge not to smoke, drink, use drugs, or have sex outside of marriage.

The state Senate measure exempts Medi-Share from state regulationsl. The legislation will now go to the state House, which is expected to approve the measure.
