To those who may be unfamiliar with the concept of people caring for one another and voluntarily sharing their medical needs: Altrua HealthShare is a faith-based medical needs sharing membership that acts as a neutral escrow agent for the members. Many organizations like ours have been operating successfully for years.
How it works is simple and straightforward:
Members submit a monthly "contribution" (similar to an insurance premium).
Member contributions are placed into an escrow account, from which members' medical needs are shared according to the membership guidelines and escrow instructions. The AHS Guidelines explain what medical expenses are shared through this cost-sharing, faith-based program.
When you receive medical services, please present your Altrua HealthShare ID card. The provider should submit the medical need to Altrua HealthShare, which we will process according to the membership guidelines and escrow instructions. Current AHS Guidelines.
To date, all eligible medical needs have been shared according to the membership guidelines and escrow instructions.
