An alternative to traditional ACA insurance plans are Medi-Share plans. Medi-Share plans, or Health-share plans, are faith-based healthcare plans. Although Medi-share is not considered insurance and is not offered via an insurance company, it is recognized by Health and Human Services as coverage and is a legal alternative to health insurance.
Medi-Share plans provided by Altrua Ministries (dba Altrua HealthShare) offer several affordable plans for patients interested in paying for treatments directly, rather than using private health insurance. Medishare programs will not cover certain lifestyle choice events such as injuries caused while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, abortions,pregnancy outside of marriage, etc.
