CHM by the numbers | 2020 edition

Christian Healthcare Ministries 40 years

Christian Healthcare Ministries is blessed to serve hundreds of thousands of Christians who rally together to voluntarily share each other's medical bills. The 2020 year brought many trials as the world faced a global pandemic, but also many victories. As CHM enters 40 years of service, we are grateful to share with you many exciting statistics as a recap of what CHM members did for one another in 2020.

Medical bill sharing stats

It’s not unusual for CHM staff to learn of members receiving medical bill discounts of 40, 50, or 75 percent or more, equaling tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings.  Take a look at the total medical bill amounts before discounts versus how much CHM secured in discounts and financial assistance in 2020. CHM members then shared over $600 million in one another's medical costs.

Serving members and telling the CHM story

Based on the biblical principles of Galatians 6:2 and Acts 2 and 4, we apply our biblical calling to every aspect of our ministry—in the way we interact with members, encourage members to interact with each other, pray over medical bills, or talk with providers. We serve members by looking at healthcare through a Bible-focused lens.
