Our plans offer tailor-made medical cost-sharing to individuals, families, and businesses. Please note that our plans are only available to people in the United States. MCS recommends you obtain Traveler’s Insurance before leaving the United States.
The primary member may apply for dependent coverage (children) after 1 year of age, and until the age of 18.
Most Christian Healthcare Ministries monthly contributions (monthly shares) amounts depend on your age, but in the case of Medical Cost Sharing, we have decided that your monthly contribution is the same regardless of your age. Our community is strong, and every one of us - whether young or old - has the same benefits and rights as everyone else who's on the same plan. Our monthly contribution's structure depends only on the plan of choice, and the total number of members being enrolled under one application.
"I signed up with MCS. I am very healthy with no pre-existing health problems and take no prescription medications. I used the Telemedicine benefit when I got a sinus infection recently and the online Doctor called in a prescription for an antibiotic to my local pharmacy! This is a great deal!"
"I researched medical cost sharing very carefully and decided to join last August and have enjoyed the savings. I have found the ministry staff to be friendly and easy to work with. If you are taking lots of prescription medications and are not healthy, then you may be better off on an Obamacare plan. If you are a healthy Christian though, this is a great choice."
"My family is so blessed to have found MCS. We love the telemedicine benefit and the two times that we needed to go to a Doctor locally have found great ones to use in our area."
"I have been a member of MCS Medical Cost Sharing for more than a year now and recommend them to my friends at church. When I was reading about them in the beginning, I was a bit concerned because the annual limit of what they would pay was $200,000. I called and talked with one of the staff there and found out that the $200,000 was the “Shared Benefit Limit” not the actual bill from the Doctors office or hospital. The actual bill from the hospital could be MUCH HIGHER and still could be completely paid because MCS will be able to negotiate a substantially lower final cost with your health care providers."
"MCS Medical Cost Sharing has been a great blessing in my life."
"I am saving $272 per month and lowered my annual out of pocket expense from $6000 to $1000 by using MCS on the Gold Plan. This is a no brainer."
"I found Medical Cost Sharing through their website and checked them out very carefully. They are smaller than some of the other health sharing ministries but saw they were offering benefits that the others were not and decided to join. I have had no problems with them at all and have enjoyed saving lots of money over my ObamaCare plan!"
"I was a bit hesitant about joining Medical Cost Sharing at first because I read some negative information online, but talked to a few people that were members and also talked with a health insurance agent friend of the family and they had good things to say, so here I am and all has been great."
"I have been a member of Medical Cost Sharing for three years now. They have been great to work with. I have saved several thousand dollars on my health care costs compared to my old Blue Cross plan."
