HEALTH SERVICES FOR CHRISTIANS: WHAT IS SEDERA HEALTH?

Control Your Health Care Costs offers Health Excellence Plus™, which provides Christians and members of all faiths who share Sedera's Concepts and Principles of Membership with freedom from health insurance through Medical Cost Sharing. With this program, you become a free-market patient, which means you're in control of your health within a community of like-minded people with a shared belief set.

The Medical Cost Sharing portion of the program provided through Sedera, Inc. is built upon the principles used by some of the Christian healthcare sharing groups. For the past 70 years, either the insurance model or the government has dominated the economic model of healthcare. However, in the late 1980's and early 90's some modern-day Christian groups began comparing the escalating costs of healthcare with the simple and effective way older Christian groups (such as the Amish) have handled their property and casualty needs for more than a century. We've all heard of the proverbial Amish "barn raising." There’s no need to insure the "barn" because the community will come together for a "barn raising” if it should burn down.

These Christian groups decided to follow the Biblical mandate of "bearing one another's burdens" by sharing healthcare costs in a similar fashion: members of the community literally share one another's medical bills. This method of meeting needs proved effective as it withstood court challenges from its "outside the box" approach (which was really a reintroduction of the historical sharing approach modeled by the Amish).

By 2010 and the passage of the ACA the impressive growth of the Christian health care sharing movement had, by now, led to hundreds of thousands of individuals and families not using an insurance model, but rather trusting to the sharing of needs as administered by these health care sharing groups. So, the ACA, in recognizing the effectiveness of these groups and their sound legal history, enshrined their legitimacy in law by granting an exemption to the law's penalties for those who were a part of these recognizable groups.

Although the exemption of the law only applies to a very limited number of qualified Christian health care sharing groups and their members, the model of health care sharing has proven legitimate and effective. As long as one can find ways of fulfilling the law's mandates (note: the "individual mandate" that provided tax penalties for those who do not meet all the ACA's requirements was eliminated effective 1/1/2019), the health care sharing model can teach us much.

This is where Sedera Medical Cost Sharing was born as a concept. Health-conscious Americans needed an alternative to the high cost of fully-insured health plans. Participation in a health plan that includes Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) provides compliance with the Individual Shared Responsibility Provision of the ACA.

Even though it is no longer required to provide a MEC and cover preventive costs, two of the three program options (the DPC-Direct Primary Care Healthcare program does not use a MEC because most preventive care is provided through the Direct Primary Care provider and screening mammograms and colonoscopies and vaccinations/immunizations for children through age 18 are covered under the medical cost sharing portion of the program) our other plan options continue to employ a MEC because we believe that continuing to provide and utilize preventive care services will help keep members healthy, reduce the incidence of illness (particularly chronic illness), and hence reduce the costs of healthcare both to the individual member and the community as a whole.

But what about actually handling the escalating costs of illness or injury? This is where the Medical Cost Sharing model, which is not insurance, applies. Sedera expands the sharing approach to individuals and their households who choose to share common health-related goals.
