Christian Healthcare Ministry May Be Allowed to Continue

Ad Feedback

The Kentucky legislature has passed a bill allowing a Christian health care ministry to resume operations.

Medi-Share is a Christians-only health care plan. Only people who pledge not to smoke, drink, use drugs, or have sex outside of marriage are eligible to participate in the plan.

A judge closed it down last year after objections from the Kentucky Insurance Department.

The proposal would exempt the Medi-Share ministry from state insurance regulations. Participants in the plan would be required to sign a notice acknowledging they're aware they may not have their claims paid.

The Kentucky Senate and House both passed the measure overwhelmingly. Gov. Steve Beshear has not indicated whether he will sign the measure.
