Telemedicine for CHM members has been a goal of CHM’s Provider Relations team, the mission of which is to assist CHM members in accessing quality care while saving on cost in the process. And now, telemedicine is here, with free services for CHM members using HealthiestYou™ by Teladoc.
Here are a few advantages of telemedicine:
Access. Telemedicine removes time and distance barriers to care. Wherever you are and whatever time it is, you can quickly “get in” to see the doctor.
Quality. Telemedicine cuts the risk of transmitting infections, improves patient engagement in their care, and enables remote monitoring. For example, one of my family members has an implanted cardiac monitor. The cardiologist can monitor and be alerted to dysrhythmias that might occur any time of day or night.
Cost. Around 30 percent of emergency department (ED) visits are non-urgent. Telemedicine cuts down ED visits by 20 percent, and results in 38 percent fewer hospital admissions and readmissions. The average telemedicine appointment costs around $50 (free for CHM members using HealthiestYou™), while the average ED visit is $922. Telemedicine can save big.
Please remember that, beginning Jan. 1, 2022, financial gifts will increase. This change will be reflected when you receive your monthly billing for the January 2022 billing cycle.
On Jan. 1, 2022, we will begin billing Brother’s Keeper membership monthly, at a fixed amount, rather than the present quarterly billing basis of varying amounts. Brother’s Keeper will be billed monthly, at a rate of $20, per unit. You will see this change reflected when you receive your monthly statement for the January 2022 billing cycle.

When preparing your taxes, here are important details for CHM members to remember:
*Missouri members will receive a letter from CHM regarding their monthly and Brother’s Keeper gift amounts.
CHM was the nation’s first health cost sharing ministry. As the pioneers of this model and as its standard-bearer, our obligation is to continue setting the standard. CHM is guided by a set of 14 best-practice ministry standards. CHM Vice President and General Counsel, David Tschantz, explains CHMs best-practice ministry standard.
As a CHM member, you’re part of a body of believers who serve as the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. Even when there’s no crisis at hand, every day we see members caring for each other. During extraordinary times, we've seen CHM members make extraordinary gestures of Christian love and goodwill. It’s our honor to glorify God by continued service to you, just as we have done for nearly 40 years.
…and we haven’t stopped since all of this began. We know that God has a plan and purpose for everything, but we also know that many of you are suffering physically and financially right now. Our hope is that CHM can be a beacon of hope for you in the midst of challenging times.
Please know that we’re still working diligently behind the scenes to serve you, even though some processes and procedures look a bit different. For example, some of our employees are working from home. Others are working in-office hours following strict health protocols that will keep our staff safe, so they can continue to share your medical bills and perform other essential ministry functions.
