Christians-Only Medical Plan May Soon Return to KY
A Christians-only medical program that had been banned in Kentucky is expected to resume operations next month, unless officials at the state's Department of Insurance decide to continue a decade-long legal fight.
The Kentucky General Assembly passed a law in March exempting Florida-based cost-sharing ministry Medi-Share from regulations applying to traditional insurance companies. That was done in response to a Franklin County Circuit judge's order barring Medi-Share from the commonwealth.
The new law will take effect June 25.
Medi-Share attorney Stephen Sullivan said the DOI has asked to meet with ministry officials. Sullivan said he is hopeful both sides will jointly ask that the ban be lifted.
