FAITH-BASED HEALTH CARE ORGANIZATIONS
Faith-based health care is a religious-oriented alternative to standard health care. Health care sharing ministries offer faith-based plans that operate with exemption from the mandates of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare.
Faith-based plans do not intend to function as insurance policies. Instead, faith-based plans operate as health care sharing among large groups of people, wherein each member pays a monthly premium. When one of the members becomes ill or needs treatment for an injury, his or her contributions cover the expenses, in conjunction with the collective input of fellow members. As such, the premiums are lower in comparison to those of traditional health care. Christian health ministries typically administer these faith-based plans.
