Statement of Beliefs
THE MINISTRY IS NOT AN INSURANCE COMPANY AND THE MINISTRY DOES NOT OFFER ANY INSURANCE PRODUCTS OR POLICIES. THE MINISTRY DOES NOT ASSUME ANY RISK FOR YOUR MEDICAL EXPENSES, AND THE MINISTRY MAKES NO PROMISE TO PAY. HEALTH CARE SHARING MINISTRIES ARE NOT GOVERNED BY INSURANCE LAWS.

This is not Insurance
A Health Care Sharing Ministry (“HCSM”) is a group of individuals that share a common set of ethical or religious beliefs and share their medical expenses in accordance with those beliefs without regard to the state in which a member resides or is employed.
Services are based on a religious tradition of mutual aid, neighborly assistance, and burden sharing. The ministry does not subsidize self-destructive behaviors and lifestyles but is specifically tailored for individuals who maintain a healthy lifestyle, make responsible choices regarding health and care, and believe in helping others. A Health Care Sharing Ministry program is NOT health insurance.
YOU SHOULD CONSULT WITH A TAX PROFESSIONAL FOR DETAILS REGARDING YOUR EXEMPTION.

Promise to Pay
The ministry does not make a promise to pay or any guarantee of payment of your medical expenses. You will be responsible for the payment of your medical bills. The ministry does not assume your risk. The ministry does not guarantee that your medical expenses will be shared by other members participating in an Aliera Plan that utilize health care sharing services.
Participation in the ministry HCSM is voluntary. Enrollment as an Aliera member and participant of the ministry HCSM is voluntary and the sharing of monetary contributions are also voluntary. Enrollment in the ministry sharing plan is not a contract. You are free to cancel your participation at any time. The ministry requests a Monthly Share Amount, to be collected each month you are enrolled, to facilitate the payment of sharing requests published on behalf of other participants.
The ministry manages its sharing contributions by establishing guidelines that define eligible sharing (“Guidelines”). The Guidelines are not a contract of insurance. They do not constitute an agreement, a promise to pay, or an obligation to share. The Guidelines are intended to ensure that every participant has paid their own medical expenses, as they are financially able, before requesting others to share with you to assist in paying remaining medical expenses. The Guidelines specify what type of expenses are eligible for sharing requests, so all participants of the ministry HCSM can expect a reasonable and equitable level of sharing requests to be published monthly.
The ministry is authorized to exclude sharing for pre-existing conditions. You are required to fully disclose pre-existing conditions as part of your participation in the HCSM. The ministry reserves the right to exclude sharing eligibility for any pre-existing conditions, whether disclosed at the time of your enrollment or discovered after the effective date of the membership.
