Founded in 1981, Christian Healthcare Ministries (CHM) is the original health care sharing ministry for Christians. CHM is a nonprofit, voluntary cost-sharing ministry through which participating Christians meet each other’s medical bills. CHM members have shared more than $1 billion in medical bills. The ministry is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
Christian Healthcare Ministries is not a health insurance company. It's a group of thousands of
Christians across the United States and around the world who share each other’s burdens in the area of health care costs. We also pray for and encourage one another.
CHM has existed as a ministry for nearly 35 years and have served more than 100,000 people. However, our history goes as far back as New Testament times. CHM is based on Galatians 6:2 and Acts 2 and 4.
To be CHM members, participating adults must be Christians living by biblical principles, including abstaining from the use of tobacco and the illegal use of drugs (1 Corinthians 6:19-20), following biblical teaching on the use of alcohol, and attending group worship regularly if health permits (Hebrews 10:25). There are no restrictions based on age, weight, geographic location or health history.
