My husband is a pastor and I am a college professor. During our 23 years of marriage, we have always had traditional health insurance. However, when the nation’s health care laws shifted, we were faced with seeking an alternative to meet our health care costs. A friend told us about CHM and we began doing research.

We were immediately impressed by the shared values and tremendous vision of CHM. We decided this program would be a great fit for our family and we joined the ministry in January 2014.

Our family lives a preventative lifestyle with a plant-based diet and regular exercise. In 16 years of parenting, we have never had any serious illnesses or injuries—no stitches, no breaks, no flu, no hospital visits.

However, within a month of joining CHM, we had our first need for a hospital visit, as our 10-year-old daughter fell and broke her arm at the playground. Because the first doctor misdiagnosed the issue, our daughter’s arm required surgery in order to heal correctly.

CHM was a tremendous support throughout the whole experience, and we were amazed when we received a check for the entire amount of the hospital bill—$20,000.

When we tell friends about CHM, the question they always ask is, “Does it really work?” We can now answer emphatically, “Yes, indeed!”
