If you are here, looking for a positive solution to the rising costs of Health Insurance and The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare, you have come to the right place.
Every day, thousands discover Health Care Sharing Ministries as a positive solution to health insurance. Sharing ministries similar to Altrua HealthShare have been around for nearly thirty years, and billions of dollars of health care needs have been shared in by fellow members. Health Care Sharing Ministries are NOT insurance but in several ways can operate similarly. Sharing ministries are faith-based and members are called to abide by a certain set of standards established through the member guidelines and the application of a Statement of Faith or Statement of Standards particular to each individual Health Care Sharing Ministry. As a member of a Health Care Sharing Ministry (HCSM), one is considered by the medical profession to be a self-pay patient. Self-pay patients typically enjoy lower costs than are charged to health insurance companies. HCSM members do not participate in subsidizing or paying for certain lifestyles that continue to add to the rising costs associated with insurance companies. Members of a sharing ministry remain self-pay, but they benefit from having other members who believe in caring for one another through the Health Care Sharing Ministry.
Altrua HealthShare is unique in that it does not require a pastor, elder or representative from one’s local church to sign an acknowledgement verifying church attendance or the validation of the medical need being submitted to the membership for sharing. Members of Altrua HealthShare do not have to wait on other members to send individual checks to them for the sharing in their medical needs. The members of Altrua HealthShare can rest assured that each eligible medical need submitted to the membership will be shared in accordance to the members’ escrow account instructions and the member guidelines.
Altrua HealthShare and its membership opportunities are developed and based on biblical guidelines established for living a healthy and honorable lifestyle according to godly principles. Altrua HealthShare does not lean towards one denomination, religion or walk of faith. Altrua HealthShare leaves the convictions of each individual to honor the Statement of Standards for becoming a member.
Altrua HealthShare and its membership would love for you to be a part of this ministry and to experience how caring for one another through this Health Care Sharing Ministry can be a blessing to you as it is to so many who participate.
