Accreditation & Integrity

When making decisions about your healthcare, you want the option that prioritizes integrity, transparency, and excellence. That's why we champion integrity and consumer protection. We consistently exceed industry standards to bring you peace of mind. 


Independent accreditation protects you

The facts are clear: independent accreditation stands apart.

A ministry or organization is legitimately accredited if it passes an intense, comprehensive operational review by a reliable, third-party body of experts. The tougher the accreditation review for health cost sharing ministries, the better it is for the people it serves. That’s why we prioritized, sought, and earned the first and only independent accreditation in the nation for health cost sharing ministries. 

Why integrity matters

Integrity goes beyond just “doing the right thing.” It’s an intentional choice to take ethical, virtuous actions that serve members and honor God. It’s at the heart of who we are, and what we do.

Whether it be through independent accreditation, important legislature, financial analysis, or innovative best practices, our actions fulfill our mission with integrity. As we bear each other’s healthcare burdens, we make a difference in the lives of brothers and sisters in Christ.


How we're leading the industry

As America’s first and longest-serving health cost sharing ministry, we make choices that prioritize integrity.

That’s why we earned third-party accreditation from Demotech, a financial analysis firm that principally serves insurance companies by providing Financial Stability Ratings®.

Demotech developed its Faith-based Sharing Review™ (FbSR) program to assess HCSMs in 30 different areas of financial and organizational operation. CHM scored 95 out of a possible 100 points on the FbSR and was the first health cost sharing ministry in the nation to do so. 

Exceeding with transparency 

Our actions don’t stop there. We consistently exceed industry standards:

  • Better Business Accredited Charity since 2013
  • Annual audit by independent accounting firm
  • We’ve taken care of 100 percent in members’ eligible medical bills since 1981
