A Tea Party activist is hoping to end a decade-long battle between the Kentucky Department of Insurance and a Christian health sharing organization.
Christian Care Medishare pools money from members in various states to pay medical bills for members in need. The group has a religious exemption to certain federal rules governing insurance companies. But the state has not made such concessions.
Now, activist David Adams is teaming up with Republican state Senator Tom Buford to push a bill that would grant Medishare its exemptions.
