How it works

You may be thinking, Christian Healthcare Ministries sounds great, but how does it work? Learn about CHM’s program costs, when medical expense eligibility begins, tips for interacting with your healthcare provider and more.

Why it works

Christians have something different than the rest of the world: We have Christ as our Lord and the Holy Spirit who guides our actions. These are what motivate us and drive us to help other Christians and keep our word. CHM’s history shows that members have done what they said they will do. Learn more here.

The CHM story as told by members

Jeff Christerson (Aptos, CA)

Jeff Christerson was attending a music festival with his girlfriend and her family when the unthinkable happened: a shooter opened fire on the Las Vegas crowd, killing 58 and leaving more than 850 wounded. Jeff explains how CHM members shared $11,000 and is grateful to God for his “second chance at life.”

Foothills Christian Church (El Cajon, CA)

A dangerous delivery. A three-week NICU stay. Four months of hospice care. Severe brain damage leading to cerebral palsy. A praying church looking to God for healing and to CHM for financial help. Watch the Hoffman family and Foothills Christian Church’s pastors tell their miraculous story about the greater body of Christ rallying to bless their family and share over $224,000 in medical bills.

Saranne Wilson (Lakeside, CA)

Hear the compelling story of Cliff and Saranne Wilson, who faced a heart transplant and over $400,000 in medical bills. After large discounts, all the bills were shared through CHM’s Gold schedule and Prayer Page programs for pre-existing conditions. In Saranne’s words: “We received financial support from the Prayer Page, and it was just such a relief to know that financial burden was going to be taken care of. And it was.”

The Barradas Family (Yuma, AZ)

CHM members Janelle and Esteban Barradas share their story about how CHM helped share for their maternity medical costs.

Matthew Smith (Colorado Springs, CO)

CHM member Matthew Smith of Colorado Springs, along with his climbing partner, Tommy, spent two nerve-wracking and potentially deadly nights trapped by a blizzard on Mount of the Holy Cross in Colorado. From getting lost in the wilderness to experiencing frostbite to a dramatic helicopter rescue, Matthew recounts how God sustained him on the mountain and orchestrated the events that saved his life and the role CHM members played in sharing his medical bills.

Dreama Whitlow (Massillon, OH)

CHM staff member Dreama Whitlow walks viewers through her cancer journey, talks about the decision she made to give God the glory in all outcomes, reflects on the lessons she learned spiritually, and expresses the way she saw CHM members share her medical bills totaling more than $180,000 after about $150,000 in discounts.

The Benham families (Concord, NC)
