Will my application be turned down for any reason such as location, health, or for being on Medicaid?
No one is excluded from participating in CHM based on age, health, or geographic location.
Please note that Christian Healthcare Ministries cannot share bills for treating ineligible medical conditions (see the CHM Guidelines).
The qualifications for joining are simple: Participating adults must be Christians who attend worship regularly as health permits (Hebrews 10:25), actively follow the teachings of the New Testament in its entirety, and live a lifestyle consistent with the CHM Statements of Beliefs.
CHM members must abstain from the following activity: use of any tobacco, nicotine, smoking device, or substitutionary smoking device (including but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, pipes, herbal cigarettes, e-cigarettes, vape pens, etc.); illegal use of drugs; and sexual immorality (as defined in the Scriptures and expressed in CHM’s Statements of Beliefs). Additionally, members must follow biblical principles concerning the use of alcohol.
If you live outside of the U.S., you can still join CHM. However, please note that CHM members must have access to a U.S. mailing address or reliable internet service capable of receiving documents with confidential information. CHM cannot send funds outside the U.S.; CHM members must translate all bills submitted into English and convert their bills to U.S. dollars.
Many members use CHM above and beyond their Medicare coverage. If you’re Medicare age or Medicare eligible, you must have parts A and B (or a Medicare Advantage Plan) to receive full sharing eligibility. For more information, click here.
