Health Care

The Church Alliance responded to a Request for Information on the Public Health Insurance Option published by the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions of the United States Senate and the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the United States House of Representatives. In the letter the Church Alliance pointed out several special considerations concerning church health care benefit plans and asked that those considerations be taken into account in any legislation that is drafted. Specifically, the letter noted the portability of the coverage, mission-driven nature of the plans, and economies of scale that church plans provide to the churches, ministries, and workers that participate.
