Altrua is a unique health care sharing ministry that does not require a pastor, elder nor representative from a local church to sign an acknowledgement verifying church attendance or validation of medical needs being submitted to the membership for sharing. Our members do not have to wait on other members to send individual checks for medical needs. Each eligible medical need submitted to the membership is shared according to the Escrow Instructions and the Membership Guidelines.
Our members do not participate in subsidizing or paying for certain lifestyles that continue to add to the rising costs associated with insurance companies. Our members are considered by the medical profession to be self-pay patients and typically enjoy lower costs than members of health insurance companies.
Our membership opportunities are developed and based on Biblical principles established for living a healthy and honorable lifestyle and members must believe in our Statement of Standards to join.
We would love for you to be a part of our ministry and to experience how caring for one another through the membership can be a blessing to you as it is to so many who participate.
Every policy, procedure, regulation and definition is outlined in the guidelines. Every new member receives the Member Guidelines book for that year and is encouraged to read and refer to it to fully understand how the membership works. We also provide a digital version of the book for quick reference and to help answer questions for members and those interested in becoming a member.

We are grateful for Altrua HealthShare and the manner in which our families healthcare needs are always met and provided for in one form or another. Thank you Altrua and Altrua members for making my families’ good health a reality.Nicole T
Altrua has helped us through multiple maternity expenses, a few surgeries, a case of meningitis, a dog bite, and of course routine health care. Our experience has been great both financially and emotionally.Mr. & Mrs. Steiner
