Healthcare Cost Sharing versus Traditional Healthcare
Unity HealthShare is a health care sharing ministry and not traditional health insurance. Those who strive to take care of themselves and who have traditional insurance end up paying to cover the costs of those who neglect their own personal care over time. Under a health care sharing ministry, members make a personal commitment to themselves and the community to lead a healthy lifestyle, which helps dramatically reduce the costs and impact of poor health choices. "A healthier lifestyle translates into lower contributions and lower medical costs for the membership as a whole," says Shelley Steele, CEO of Aliera Healthcare.
About Unity HealthShare
Unity HealthShare was established as a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity under the Anabaptist HealthShare organization. Members of health-sharing organizations share a common set of ethical or religious beliefs around health and community and further share in each other's medical expenses, unlike traditional health insurance. Aliera markets and sells Unity HCSM products alongside its non-insurance based products providing individuals ACA exemption.
