Faith-Centered Healthshare Programs with Primary and Preventive Care Sharing
Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, Covenant HealthShare is a non-profit health care sharing ministry (HCSM) offering low-cost healthshare programs. With four different levels of membership, Covenant offers a wide range of plan options for both individuals and families.
Like many health sharing plans, Covenant HealthShare was founded on Christian beliefs of responsibility, community, and faith. Members are required to acknowledge and agree with Covenant’s seven statements of faith in order to join.
Start here: What is health sharing?
Health care cost sharing, or simply healthshare, is an affordable, community-based alternative to traditional health insurance. Healthshare programs provide a low-cost way for Americans to protect themselves from large or unexpected medical costs.
At the same time, health sharing plans create an opportunity to support friends, neighbors, and other healthshare members by agreeing to share the cost of one another’s healthcare through member-to-member sharing.
How do Covenant HealthShare programs work?
Like most health share programs, Covenant HealthShare is designed to facilitate the shared cost of medical bills through member-to-member funds. When a medical expense arises, the member is responsible for paying the bill. If the expense is qualified for sharing according to ministry guidelines, then Covenant will act as the clearinghouse to distribute member funds accordingly.
Instead of a deductible, Covenant HealthShare programs come with a Personal Responsibility Amount Yearly (PRAY). Covenant’s PRAY is defined as the amount not shareable by the community to individual members on a 12-month basis from the date of program enrollment. A medical need will not qualify for sharing until the total Share Request(s) submitted exceed the member’s PRAY.
Covenant Core Level: Most comprehensive option
The Core Level shares the cost of doctor visits, urgent care, specialty care, and hospital services. Core is available in three different PRAY levels, $1,000, $2,000, and $5,000.
Each program also has a different monthly membership gift (MMG) cost based on age bands, with family programs starting as low as $430.56 per month, and individual programs starting at as low as $191.36 per month.
This is Covenant’s most popular program.
Covenant Choice Level: Budget-friendly program with meaningful protection
Choice level includes emergency room, ambulance, and hospital services, but with a higher PRAY amount than the Core-level option. A Choice-level membership is a good way to keep monthly costs down while staying protected against serious accidents and unexpected illnesses.
With a $10,000 Pray Amount, the Choice program starts as low as $104.12 for an individual, and $223.02 for a family, but does increase based on 10-year age bands.
Choice the most popular program for people who are comfortable with the higher PRAY amount.
Covenant Crisis Level: Pay-as-you-go pricing for catastrophic services
The Crisis level provides affordable sharing for the unexpected hospital costs and emergency treatment, like riding in an ambulance or emergency surgery. Crisis is more affordable than the Core level, however it does not share the cost of regular doctor visits such as primary care or urgent care so everyday needs may not be met.
This program comes with a $5000 or $10,000 PRAY amount, and programs starting as low as $127.36 per month.
Crisis level is chosen by people who need a lower monthly contribution amount than is available with the Core or Choice options.
Covenant Daily Level: Most affordable way to stay healthy
The Daily level provides member access to doctor office visits, urgent care, specialty care, maternity, and laboratory sharing. This program starts as low as $86.40 per month for individuals, and has a low PRAY amount of only $100.
It is important to understand that this level does not provide sharing for hospitalization or surgery.
