FAQ: What is Christian Health Care Sharing?

By OneShare Health on 11:00 AM on January 7, 2021

What is Christian Health Care Sharing?

Christian health care sharing helps Members save money on their health care costs and obligations. The church is meant to lift each other up, and Christian health care sharing is one way that Christians can help each other and their community. Jesus taught that everyone needs to be of one accord, and when this teaching is applied to something as fundamental as health care and as crucial as health care costs, the wishes of Christ may be fulfilled.

FAQ: How Is OneShare Health Different From Health Insurance?

By OneShare Health on 9:00 AM on December 16, 2020

How is OneShare Health different from traditional and Christian health insurance?

Medical sharing programs—also known as “health care sharing” and “health sharing programs”—are offered by Health Care Sharing Ministries like OneShare Health. Thanks to their flexibility, affordability and ACA-exempt status, these Programs are becoming increasingly popular for people who are looking for alternative health care options.

Is OneShare Health exempt from Obamacare? Keep reading to find out.

You may know all about the Affordable Care Act, but does it apply to OneShare Health? As a Health Care Sharing Ministry (HCSM), OneShare Health’s ACA religious exemption is one of our most attractive features. As with all HCSMs under 26 USC § 5000A(d)(2)(B)(ii), OneShare Health’s members are exempt from the ACA individual mandate requirement of the U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("ACA"). While the federal individual mandate of the ACA was repealed in December 2017, effective in 2019, you may wish to consult your legal advisor regarding any relevant individual mandates under state law.
