AHA Action Alert: Tell Representatives to Support Health Share Transparency Act

The American Humanist Association is asking that we contact our representatives now to urge them to co-sponsor and support the Health Share Transparency Act (HR 8324) that calls for healthcare sharing ministries to be transparent and accountable. Healthcare sharing ministries (HCSMs) are highly unregulated cost-sharing organizations that masquerade as health insurance and are open to people who share religious or ethical beliefs. HCSMs are not required to comply with many consumer protections, are not required to cover health expenses and prey on individuals who believe they have purchased health insurance when they indeed have not. The Health Share Transparency Act would put a stop to the deceptive practices of HCSMs by holding them accountable and requiring disclosures to consumers.
