‘Leap of faith’: Will health care ministries cover your costs?

Martin Estacio was shelling out $800 per month for a health plan that didn’t fit his two-state lifestyle.
The retired San Bernardino firefighter lives between Oklahoma and California. But his health insurance policy, purchased in Oklahoma, didn’t cover non-emergency care outside the state.
So Estacio dropped his plan this month and took a leap of faith. He joined Christian Healthcare Ministries (CHM), an alternative to health insurance that offers a religious approach to covering medical bills.
