Ep. 30 – Catholic Healthcare Sharing


Healthcare sharing ministries have been around for decades, but they rose to prominence after the passage of the Affordable Care Act. These organizations act as a replacement for medical insurance. Instead of paying a monthly premium, participants send their monthly contribution to other members with expenses that need to be covered. Until recently, however, there were no explicitly Catholic options.

Today, Steve sits down with Louis Brown, the director of CMF CURO – an apostolate of the Christ Medicus Foundation, and the first Catholic healthcare sharing ministry. Louis explains what CMF CURO is, how it works, and how it can reduce the health care costs of Catholics while allowing them to engage in Christian charity and be a part of an organization that won’t violate their conscience.

This is a podcast every Catholic in America needs to hear.

  1. I didn’t listen to the whole thing so I don’t know if they address this but if you live paycheck to paycheck it’s actually a lot cheaper (savings of $85 per month for a family of five or $1,020 / year) to go to Samaritan themselves. CMF Curo is essentially just a Catholic storefront and you’re paying extra to simply pay for Catholic’s medical bills instead of the general population of Samaritan which is probably predominately protty.

  2. CMF is basically a Catholic storefront for Samaritan. If you live paycheck to paycheck you can save up to $85 / month ($1020 / year) by going to Samaritan directly which is what we did.
