Obamacare loophole

Facing a $200 hike on top of the $1,100 in monthly insurance premiums he was already paying for himself, his wife and the last one of their children still living at home,
the prospect of contributing about $500 to a health sharing ministry made sense.
Nationwide, health care ministry monthly contributions average about $130 per person to $400 for a family of 4.

BY THE NUMBERS

Top 3 largest health care sharing ministries in the U.S.

1. Samaritan Ministries International
U.S. members: 122,025
California members: 6,403

2. Medi-Share Christian Care Ministry
U.S. members: 94,670
California members: 9,097

3. Christian Healthcare Ministries
U.S. members: 83,675
California: 8,146

MINISTRIES WON'T PAY THESE BILLS
:
Here are some of the treatments, medical conditions, procedures and services that are ineligible for reimbursement under the guidelines of most health care sharing ministries:
Abortion.
Alcohol and drug-related injuries and illnesses.
Sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS. Exceptions are made for STDs transmitted via blood transfusions, rape, work-related needle sticks, or sex within marriage.
Any medical condition that results from the member committing a crime.
Medical conditions caused by attempted suicides.
Maternity or pregnancy expenses for children conceived out of wedlock. Exceptions are made for pregnancies resulting from "verified rapes".
