What providers say about CHM

Have you ever wondered what providers thought about CHM? CHM works healthcare providers across the United States, in addition to maintaining a list of CHM-friendly providers and recommended providers. That all adds up to a lot of time spent with providers!

Several providers have shared their testimony of what they truly think of CHM—and provided tips for CHM members or self-pay patients when you interact with your own personal provider. 

Supporting Prayer Page members all year long

The Prayer Page is an amazing testimony to the power of the Holy Spirit and the generosity and love of our members. Through voluntary donations, the medical needs of members with pre-existing conditions are shared.

But after January, this support often drops—even though the number of members who need support doesn’t. They still need your support through cancer, surgery, heart conditions, and more.

To donate, go to your Member Portal and set up a one-time or recurring donation under the billing portion. Though monthly financial gifts aren’t tax deductible*, all Prayer Page donations are tax deductible.

Additionally, you can spiritually support members on the Prayer Page (found on pages 12-15 of Heartfelt Magazine) as well by writing a card or email of encouragement to a member listed there.

dave tschantzWhy is CHM unique?

CHM was the nation’s first health cost sharing ministry. As the pioneers of this model and as its standard-bearer, our obligation is to continue setting the standard. CHM is guided by a set of 14 best-practice ministry standards. CHM Vice President and General Counsel, David Tschantz, explains CHMs best-practice ministry standard.

Five things you should know about CHM and COVID-19

The Church is the hands and feet of Jesus. We're praying for you... We continue to serve you. CHM continues to share eligible medical bills... How to get COVID-19 updates

As a CHM member, you’re part of a body of believers who serve as the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. Even when there’s no crisis at hand, every day we see members caring for each other. During extraordinary times, we've seen CHM members make extraordinary gestures of Christian love and goodwill. It’s our honor to glorify God by continued service to you, just as we have done for over 40 years.

…and we haven’t stopped since all of this began. We know that God has a plan and purpose for everything, but we also know that many of you are suffering physically and financially right now. Our hope is that CHM can be a beacon of hope for you in the midst of challenging times.

Please know that we’re still working diligently behind the scenes to serve you, even though some processes and procedures look a bit different. For example, some of our employees are working from home. Others are working in-office hours following strict health protocols that will keep our staff safe, so they can continue to share your medical bills and perform other essential ministry functions.

…and we can financially support any bills submitted for COVID-19—along with bills for other health conditions. The ministry employs strong financial principles, including operating within a debt-free mindset, analyzing and adjusting monthly costs to make sure medical bills are shared despite rising healthcare costs, and working with members and healthcare providers to secure the best prices for medical procedures. In addition, CHM's recent sharing time average takes 75-90 days once the ministry receives all necessary forms and itemized medical bills.
