What is healthcare sharing and is it an option for my family?

Many of our clients have used a cost-sharing arrangement to cover all or part of their prenatal care fees. Organizations like Samaritan Ministries and Christian Healthcare Ministries provide networks of members who help defer each other’s healthcare expenses, but do maintain certain requirements for participation (members may need to prove adherence to a Christian faith and lifestyle, or sign up in advance of conception, for example). This might be a good option for you if paying for birth care out-of-pocket or through traditional insurance is not feasible. For more information, please visit the following websites:
