Editor’s note: This information was published in the August 2019 issue of Heartfelt Magazine, CHM’s monthly magazine that provides CHM membership-related tips and tricks, medical advice from doctors, testimonies from CHM members, and more.

CHM’s Brother’s Keeper ministry can protect you from the financial and emotional strain of catastrophic medical bills. If you haven’t yet joined Brother’s Keeper, there are a number of reasons to consider it today.

If a serious and expensive illness occurs, Brother’s Keeper membership shields you from concern about your bills—and you can instead concern yourself with getting well.

No one wants to believe they’ll deal with cancer, heart disease, or any condition that can push costs above CHM’s $125,000 regular-program limit. But it happens (see article below on the Hart family and page 3 for the Bradford family story). Every quarter, millions of dollars in medical bills above the $125,000 lifetime maximum per illness are shared by Brother’s Keeper members.

Brother’s Keeper’s cost, on average, is an annual $40 administration fee per household, and each quarter you’ll receive an invoice for what has historically averaged between $25 and $35 per membership unit.

In the past there have been quarters when the cost has been on the high end of that scale; there are also quarters when it has been zero.

At the time of this writing, 69 percent of all CHM members are part of Brother’s Keeper, including 83 percent of Gold members. The ministry’s Gold program plus Brother’s Keeper gives you unlimited health cost support—all while keeping more money in your pocket.

It’s easy to join the movement and become a Brother’s Keeper member. Send us an email at and let us know you want to join.

Please don’t wait. It’s simple, affordable, and a marvelous safeguard for you against catastrophic healthcare costs.

Editor’s note: Additional Brother’s Keeper information is on CHM’s website.

To receive help with medical bills over $125,000 per illness, you must be enrolled in Brother’s Keeper prior to experiencing any signs, symptoms, testing or treatment. Any medical incident CHM is sharing at the time you join Brother’s Keeper will not be eligible for Brother’s Keeper. For more info, see CHM Guideline Y.
