I was surprised and disappointed to see that my Christian healthcare sharing organization (Christian Care
Medi-Share) considers circumcision as eligible for sharing as part of maternity
The organization doesn't share any cosmetic procedures, treatment for
self-inflicted injuries, or preventative care (mammograms, etc.). So even if
circumcision had a health benefit (I don't believe it does), it would be a "preventative" measure and
really doesn't fit with the nature of the program.
I have started to communicate with them a bit on trying to get it voted on by
the membership (because there are elections twice a year on policy changes). It
took me 3 e-mails to get a response, and then only "we have forwarded your
comments to the executive staff". My last 3 e-mails have not been responded to.
I am afraid that as just one person, I am being written off as an extremist. Or
perhaps they are just slow to answer, I do not know. Anyway, I would very much
like to find other Medi-Share members who would call/write in support of
dropping circumcision from the list of services eligible for sharing, and/or
give me support or feedback on what I am writing. Please message me if you are or know of a Medi-Share member that would team up with me here.
