Medi-Share is God’s way of helping His people care for one another while providing healthcare that works. Over five decades ago, the founding members of this ministry began sharing medical burdens on an informal basis within the membership. Seeing the need was great, Christian Care Ministry was established and began offering a formalized approach to sharing called the Medi-Share program. Healthcare sharing is based on the biblical principles of sharing. "And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased." (Hebrews 13:16) Christian Care Ministry also offers other programs to serve the Christian community including: Manna Christian Disability Sharing, Restore Disease Reversal, and Healthy Church Biblical Health and Wellness.
Simply put, health care sharing is a Biblical approach to paying for health care, based on passages such as Galatians 6. Verse two says, "Bear one another's burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ." That law is the royal law of loving one another. Each member commits to sending a set "Share" amount each month. These "Shares" are sent directly through the mail from one household to another, to the members with "Needs". Samaritan Ministries uses a database that randomly matches Shares to Needs, so that the Sharing is coordinated and Shares go to the appropriate members with Needs. When a member has a health care "Need" he receives health care treatment from a provider of his choice, collects the bills, and sends them to Samaritan Ministries. Samaritan Ministries verifies that the Need meets the Guidelines. Then, in the monthly newsletter mailing, Samaritan Ministries directs some members to send their Shares to the member with the Need. The member with the need receives the shares to pay his health care bills.
