“I have been a Medi-Share member since 2012 and was diagnosed last November with thyroid cancer. When Kim first reached out to me, I had recently gotten my thyroid cancer diagnosis. I was actually researching endocrine surgeons and praying for wisdom to navigate what lay ahead. Her call was literally a touch from God for me at that moment. You can't put a price tag on what Kim and the Care Management program did for me. And praise God, I am doing well! No sign of cancer at my last scan in February. God is GOOD, and He has shown His goodness to me through Medi-Share for nine years. My family and I are grateful!”

About Medi-Share

Medi-Share is a community of Christians who share each other’s unexpected medical burdens, much like the early church in the Bible. Since 1993, Medi-Share has been a viable solution to rising health care costs, providing an affordable choice for faith-based consumers. As a faith-based program, members pray for each other and have agreed to share in expenses that align with their Christian faith. Each month, more than 400,000 Medi- Share members across America share more than $50 million of one another’s medical expenses, approximately $650 million in medical bills annually.

How Medi-Share Works 
When Members Need Care

Every month, each household’s Monthly Share is matched with another’s Eligible Medical Bills. Through a secure online portal, Medi-Share coordinates the direct sharing of medical costs between members. The Monthly Share is based on age, location, marital status, and how many family members are participating, as well as which program option they selected. Membership is made up of Christ-followers who agree with Medi-Share’s Statement of Faith as well as the Biblical lifestyle agreement.

An estimated 1.5 million people across America choose health care sharing ministries (HCSMs) as a faith-based alternative to insurance. There are approximately 108 HCSMs recognized by CMS, with 7 making up an estimated 90% of the total health sharing market. HCSMs make up about 1% of the total health care solution marketplace.

Events Shared

Project K.E.E.P.

Christian Care Ministry launched a new prayer initiative in 2021 for elected officials and their legislative staff. Each day our Medi-Share members and employees are praying for specific elected officials by name.  

Praying for those in office is one way we can share words of encouragement that will lead to a positive impact in our communities and lighten the burden of our leaders.

As an elected official and/or staff member if you wish to sign up for prayer, please visit or contact us directly at

If you would like to join us in praying for our government officials please visit to sign up and receive your monthly prayer calendar.

“When I first joined Medi-Share I needed heart surgery to correct an Arrhythmia and I was still within my waiting period so it was not eligible for sharing. The person I spoke to said I should apply for the Extra Blessing program and see if that could help. I was approved and over 80% of my bills were shared. The notes and prayers from other members, none of whom I had met, were incredible during my recovery.”

Sustainable Lifestyle Change


Decreased Medical Usage

The Health Partnership Program is designed to provide our members with the necessary support and resources they need to lead the long, healthy, and happy lives God intended. Each month, approximately 33% of our 29,000 Health Partnership members actively participate in the program, striving for enhanced well-being.

Engagement with the program, whether through interacting with a coach, utilizing the portal, or leveraging wearable devices, fosters motivation, goal-setting, accountability, education, and ultimately prompts action toward improved health outcomes.

Active involvement in the program fosters a deeper understanding of the body and overall health through transformative lifestyle changes. The primary objective is to implement long-term behavior change, providing a sustainable path toward lasting health improvements. 

This holistic approach yields tangible results, including reduction in key metrics, risk factors, medication dependence, and symptoms, thereby mitigating the onset or progression of preventable disease.

Completion of the program, achieved at a commendable rate of approximately 7%, entails meeting a series of benchmark metrics, used to help our members achieve a more protected state of health, characterized by reduced risks, symptom free function, peace of mind, and a brighter outlook for the future.
