Christian cost-sharing ministries like OneShare Health are 100% committed to the health and happiness of our valued Sharing Family, which is why two of our OneShare Health Memberships, the Classic and Complete Programs, include Preventive Services.
Preventive care is the most important step you can take to manage your health, as many of the risk factors leading to illness and premature death are preventable. Let’s break down Eligible* Preventive Services including Wellness Visits and how sharing works on our Classic and Complete Programs!
*Sharing Eligibility is subject to Program Guidelines, limitations, Maximums, and Pre-Existing Condition Exclusions. Refer to membership guide for full details of sharing eligibility.
How do Christian health share ministries work?
OneShare Health is a Health Care Sharing Ministry that brings together individuals who believe in compassionate care and the concept of medical sharing. What is medical sharing? Each month, our Members contribute to a collective pool of funds that are then used to help others within our ministry as Eligible medical needs arise. OneShare Health reviews prove that our Members are reaping the benefits of healthy, accountable living through our industry-leading medical cost-sharing Programs. Join our Sharing Family today and start living your best life.
What does OneShare Health consider to be Preventive Services?
At OneShare Health, Preventive Services are defined as “Routine health care that includes checkups, patient counseling and screening to prevent illness, disease, and other health-related problems.”

What is included in a Wellness Visit?
An annual Wellness Visit, or annual GYN, is prevention-focused and not medically necessary to treat an illness or injury. It includes past medical, social and family history; complete physical exam and review of body systems; age-/gender-appropriate screening tests including but not limited to preventive mammograms and colonoscopies; review of medications; Immunizations and counseling/anticipatory guidance/risk factor reduction interventions.
