The original cost sharing ministry
As the nation’s first and longest-serving health cost sharing ministry, CHM provides a cost-effective, accountable, and faith-based framework—health cost sharing—to help fellow believers facing a health crisis. The ministry shares 100 percent of eligible medical bills and overall has satisfied nearly $10 billion in members’ healthcare costs.
CHM’s concept originated 2,000 years ago with the early church who “held all things in common” and followed the Apostles as they prioritized meeting the needs of the poor, the oppressed, and their Christian family. Members are an extension of that testimony as CHM is first and foremost a ministry, reflecting the spiritual values outlined in Galatians 6:2 and Acts 2 and 4.
The ministry, under the leadership of President and CEO J. Craig Brown II, is headquartered in Barberton, Ohio. We’re a nonprofit (501(c)(3)), accredited organization, and a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity.
