Faith-based ministries offer alternative to traditional health insurance
Sacramento Bee

Rebecca Gertner believes her faith will help pay the medical bills. That’s why every phone call with her health care representative ends the same.

“We pray to remember that God is in control and not to worry about the bills,” Gertner said.

Gertner signed up with Medi-Share, part of Christian Care Ministry in Florida, and one of several faith-based health care sharing ministries across the country. Bill sharing, they believe, is rooted in scripture such as Galatians 6:2. “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the laws of Christ.”
