If you listen to Christian radio or visit Christian websites, you will see ads popping up, offering an alternative to Obamacare.
For example, Samaritan Ministries provides health coverage for 37,000 families, and their numbers are growing.
Subscribers not only sign up for coverage, but their plans completely bypass all the Obamacare regulatory mandates, including subsidies for abortion.
Another Christian health coverage firm does not provide insurance, but streamlines the direct sharing of medical costs among people who share the same Christian values. Because this group sought a religious exemption for their program, they sidestepped many of Obamacare’s rules.
In order to apply for this coverage, clients must sign an “Honor Code” pledge, which includes a commitment to wise personal habits: no drugs, no smoking, drink moderately, and attend Church on Sunday.
Since the program pays health care costs directly, clients often pay lower prices, without co-pays or deductibles.
A similar program, Medi-Share, also provides for patients with pre-existing conditions!
These innovations recognize an expansion of individual liberty and choice in the health insurance industry, but are not the final solution to the disastrous government overreach in Obamacare.
