How Altrua HealthShare Works

To those who may be unfamiliar with the concept of people caring for one another and voluntarily sharing their medical needs: Altrua HealthShare is a recognized Health Care Sharing Ministry where individuals, couples, families, churches and organizations contribute their financial contributions into the members’ escrow account and Altrua HealthShare is the neutral escrow agent for the members.

How it works is simple and straightforward

Members submit a monthly “contribution” (similar to an insurance premium).

Member contributions are placed into an escrow account, from which members’ medical needs are shared according to the membership guidelines and escrow instructions. The Altrua HealthShare member guidelines explain what eligible medical needs are shared through the membership.

When you receive medical services, you will present your Altrua HealthShare member ID card. The provider should submit the medical need according to the instructions on the back of the member ID card, which will then be processed according to the membership guidelines and escrow instructions.

To date, all eligible medical needs have been shared according to the membership guidelines and escrow instructions.
