CHM by the numbers

Christian Healthcare Ministries is blessed to serve hundreds of thousands of Christians who rally together to voluntarily share each other's medical bills. Since 1981, members have been ministering both financially and spiritually as fellow Christians encounter medical needs. That's over 40 years of compassionate service! We're grateful to celebrate with you and share many exciting statistics as a recap of what CHM members have done in the past, and continue to do in the present for one another.

Medical bill sharing stats

It’s not unusual for CHM members to receive medical bill discounts of 55 percent or more, which equals tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings. These discounts are thanks to members' dedication to building relationships with their healthcare providers and billing teams, plus the hard work of CHM's Provider Relations team. Take a look at the total medical bill amounts before discounts versus how much CHM secured in discounts and financial assistance in 2022. After these discounts were applied, CHM members then shared over $671 million in one another's medical costs.

CHM members submitted more medical bills than ever from around the world.
This is roughly the equivalent to buying:

Asking healthcare providers for a discount does make a difference. In 2022, the average cost for CHM members' medical procedures was cut by an average 55 percent. Not only does this number sound impressive, it helps keep monthly gift amounts low. That's right: asking for discounts saves you money.

Christian Healthcare Ministries shares 100 percent of eligible medical bills. Since CHM’s inception, the ministry has satisfied over $8 billion in members’ healthcare costs. Take a look at the breakdown of how eligible bills were shared in 2022.

When God's people come together to support one another, it becomes a testimony to the watching world. Because of members' generosity every month as they send in their monthly financial gifts, CHM was able to support over 63 thousand families, and over 5 thousand new bundles of joy who made their appearance into the world.

First in nation to achieve independent accreditation

Based on the biblical principles of Galatians 6:2 and Acts 2 and 4, we apply our biblical calling to every aspect of our ministry—in the way we interact with members, encourage members to interact with each other, pray over medical bills, or talk with providers. That's also why we are the first health cost sharing ministry in the nation to have sought and earned independent third-party accreditation from Demotech. It's additional confirmation that we're committed to consumer protection as we serve God's people.

The very first time I had to go to a doctor and have some surgery done, it was so exciting to find out that I could share my eligible medical bills with CHM every time something like this happened.

I started experiencing symptoms at the end of summer. At first, I suspected an ear infection. But after two weeks of feeling very tired and dizzy after eating, I thought maybe I had COVID-19...or was I having a stroke? I didn’t know what was happening.
