Christian Healthcare Ministries is a non-profit healthcare sharing company whose members share the costs of their medical expenses with one another. The company only allows practicing Christians (who do not use tobacco or illegal drugs) to join them. There are three main programs that an applicant can sign up for (gold, silver, and bronze) Memberships are classified in terms of “units” (one person is equivalent to one unit, and up to three or more units may be purchased). The company also offers group memberships as well (for ministries, schools, churches, etc.).
