KY House Passes Medishare Exemption Bill
By AP
FRANKFORT, KY - A Christians-only health care plan would be allowed to resume operations in Kentucky under a measure approved by the House on Tuesday.
 
The House passed the measure 88-8 on Tuesday, sending it back to the Senate for final passage.
 
The proposal would exempt the Medi-Share ministry from state insurance regulations. A Franklin County circuit judge ordered the ministry to shut down last year at the Kentucky Insurance Department's request. The bill in its current form would require members to sign a notice acknowledging they're aware they may not have their claims paid.
 
The plan resembles secular insurance in some ways but only allows participation by people who pledge to live Christian lives with no smoking, drinking, using drugs or having sex outside of marriage.
