Is OneShare Health considered Christian health insurance?

Though we are a Christian company, OneShare Health is not health insurance. As such, OneShare Health is not regulated by state insurance regulators, and Members are exempt from the individual mandate requirement of the U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). While that individual mandate is no longer enforced under federal law, you may wish to consult your legal advisor regarding any relevant individual mandates under state law.

 

Who regulates OneShare Health?

As a Christian Health Care Sharing Ministry, OneShare Health is regulated by the IRS and by State Attorneys General.

 

What does it mean to be regulated by these entities?

In short, OneShare Health is subject to the IRS’s oversight of nonprofits and is required to file annual financial information to ensure proper operations and spending of our Members’ funds. Regarding regulation by the State Attorneys General, we are subject to enforcement of consumer protection laws, thus protecting our Members against any fraud or deceptive practices.

 

Does health insurance offer medical sharing programs like OneShare Health?

No, the Sharing Programs offered by OneShare Health are unique to our company. They provide an affordable and ACA-exempt path to health care through the sharing of medical costs by Members of our Faith Community.

 

Why choose OneShare Health? Insurance is more traditional.

Compared to OneShare Health, insurance is one of the more accepted routes to receiving health care, sure. But, is it your best option? Whether you’re a healthy individual who’s in a good position to bless others through sharing, or a growing family with several loved ones to look after, a Christian healthshare is an ideal opportunity to take advantage of next-day Effective Dates (1st – 28th of the month), personalized Member assistance from our Concierge Team, as well as beneficial features including 24/7 Telemedicine for a $0 Consult Fee, Emergency Room Visits, Hospitalization, Labs, and more.* Not to mention, administration of Expense Sharing is simple and streamlined, and our Member experience is simply unparalleled.
