Ministry spreads word about 'healthcare-sharing' alternative

Trying to understand the new healthcare law can be overwhelming but a national organization suggests that Christians don't have to worry about what's happening in Washington.  

Since the Affordable Healthcare Act has become the law of the land, millions of Americans are scrambling for answers as their insurance plans are cancelled.


Tony Meggs, president and CEO of Christian Care ministry, says most people of faith are unaware that members who are part of Christian healthcare-sharing organizations have an alternative. 

Meggs maintains that members of the program have an exemption that has been given to them by the government after it determined they are an "acceptable alternative" to the new healthcare law.

Meggs concludes saying not only is Christian Care Ministry more affordable, it also promotes a healthy and biblical lifestyle for its members. Since the program began in 1993, no one has been turned down.
