Founded in 1981, Christian Healthcare Ministries (CHM) is the original health care sharing ministry for Christians. CHM is a nonprofit, voluntary cost-sharing ministry through which
participating Christians meet each others medical bills. CHM members have shared more than $1 billion in medical bills. The ministry is a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization.
Christian Healthcarte Ministries is not a health insurance company. Rather they are a group
of thousands of Christians accross the United States and around the world who share each
other's burdens in the area of health care costs. They also pray for and encourage one another.
They have existed as a ministry for nearly 35 years and have served more than 100,000
people. However, their history goes back as New Testament times. CHM is based on Galatians 6:2 and Acts 2 and 4.
