Christians express faith in coverage plan that bills itself as not insurance
Ventura County Star

Faith. It’s why Robert Daniel Apodaca Jr. invests $345 a month into a medical bills payment program for Christians that’s most easily explained by what it is not: It’s not insurance. Not regulated by state or federal watchdogs. Not bound by contract to cover his family’s medical costs. Instead, the program called Medi-Share is sort of a cooperative of the devout that allows Apodaca, a born-again Christian, to help others pay for surgeries and treatments with the faith that when someone in his family is sick, they’ll return the favor.
