Ky. Wants Faith Healthcare Ministry Held in Contempt

Ad Feedback

Christian health care ministry Medi-Share is facing legal trouble at the Kentucky Supreme Court.

The group provides a cost-sharing plan that helps pay medical bills for Christians who don't smoke, drink or engage in sex outside of marriage.

State lawyers want the court to hold Medi-Share in contempt one year after a court ruled the group must follow the same regulations as secular insurance providers.

The Kentucky Department of Insurance says Medi-Share still hasn't made any changes.

But Medi-Share insists it has and is asking for a chance to explain how it has complied.

Meanwhile, the case has drawn fire from members of the Tea Party.

"What we need is to question at a very fundamental level how and even why we are regulating risk-sharing organizations or companies that help people pay for their health care expenses," Tea Party activist David Adams said.
