’Faith care’ helps families beat high premiums
Raleigh News & Observer, March 13, 2008
In a decade in which premiums have nearly doubled and the number of uninsured continues to grow, some people are enrolling in faith-based alternatives to health insurance. Christian Care Medi-Share, for example, is a charitable ministry that collects monthly contributions and disburses them among members to pay medical bills. Critics are wary of such organizations, however, because they operate with little government oversight and don't guarantee coverage.
