Elizabeth Warren and the #DemDebate Presidential candidates continue to get healthcare WRONG!
Christian medical health sharing is one way Americans are getting healthcare RIGHT!
Health Care Debate on California Business Journal
One answer to America’s broken healthcare system might be Christian medical health sharing, where groups of people join together and agree to pay for each other’s healthcare costs.
Fixing the U.S. health care system is a top election issue for the 2020 race and yet in the most recent Democratic presidential debate on September 12, most of the candidates were still unclear on not only their plans, but also on the execution of those plans.
Glenn Wilk, founder of the Irvine-based healthcare news start-up, USHealthshare.com, says that consumers aren’t getting the answers they deserve form any of these candidates.
“I think the candidates have created even more confusion than there already is,” Wilk says. “We need to simplify the issue.” Wilk goes on to say: “To me it’s already clear. We can’t wait for our government to fix this issue, they have no idea how. What we can do is look for affordable options available today.”

Why Health Sharing?
Rising Insurance Costs
Under current law, national health spending is projected to grow at an average rate of 5.5 percent per year for 2018-27. Additionally, the share of GDP is expected to reach 20%. (CMS.gov)
ACA Guaranteed Coverage
“That’s what the Affordable Care Act is all about. It’s about filling the gaps in employer-based care so that when we lose a job, or go back to school, or start that new business, we’ll still have coverage.” —President Obama
Trump Signs $0 Tax Penalty
While some health sharing programs have always been exempt from the ACA tax penalty, that restricted ministries to pre-2000 formation. Without a tax penalty for healthcare in 2019, new health sharing programs are emerging quickly.

Christian Medical Health Share Testimonials
“We love that this is a biblical way of Christians taking care of each other,” citing the New Testament passage of Galatians 6:2, "Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.”
“There are three reasons I take patients with health care sharing ministries: It’s predictable; it’s prompt; and it’s transparent. I can focus on taking care of the patient instead of worrying about whether the insurance company will or won’t pay”
“Huge savings for us, huge!I wasn’t working and my husband was working at a church and he wasn’t making a ton of money. Financially, it was the best route for us to go. It seems to me, in some ways, like a really well-kept secret.”
Frequently Asked Questions
What are Christian Healthcare Medical Sharing Programs?
Christian healthcare, also known as health share or medical sharing, are health sharing programs for members who share Christian beliefs and commitments to living healthy. For many individuals and families, these programs are viable alternatives to traditional health insurance because they help alleviate the cost and expense of medical bills, while providing quality healthcare.
Medical Sharing and health share programs are not insurance, and medical expenses are not guaranteed. Instead, these programs facilitate the sharing among members, who voluntarily help one another with medical expenses. These plans are generally much more affordable than the cost of traditional health insurance.
How Long Has Medical Sharing Existed?
Health sharing, or Medical sharing and Christian healthcare programs, have been around since the 1980s. When the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was enacted many of these medical sharing programs were NOT subject to the individual mandate tax penalty, as they qualified as health coverage. With the 2019 reversal of the Obamacare tax penalty to $0, these health share programs, including emerging ministries, are exploding in popularity.
Is Medical Health Sharing Legitimate?
Although Christian health sharing is not insurance, it is recognized by the HHS as "coverage" and is a legitimate alternative to health insurance for many individuals and families. Members who choose health sharing are clearly advised that these programs are not health insurance.
Is Christian Health Sharing Right for Me and My Family?
Only you can determine that answer. So it's important to gather as much information as possible so that you can make an informed decision.
