shared over $6 billion

Gold program incidents example:

You receive treatment early in the year for a gallbladder problem. Your bills total $7,500 and you receive $2,500 in healthcare provider discounts. CHM shares $5,000 ($7,500-$2,500), which is 100 percent of the cost after discounts.

In the middle of the same year you have some blood tests done (for an unrelated illness) that cost $400. CHM does not share any of these bills because the total cost of the incident is less than $500.

At the end of the year, you break your arm and the treatment amounts to $2,500. CHM shares the entire amount of $2,500 because the incident totals more than $500 and the treatment meets all other CHM Guidelines.

Brother's Keeper: CHM's catastrophic bills program

Brother’s Keeper is your safeguard against catastrophic illness or injury. Brother’s Keeper is a low-cost, biblically-based program enabling CHM members to meet medical bills that exceed the $125,000 limit per illness specified in the CHM Guidelines.
