Sharity Ministries, a non-profit company providing cost-sharing health insurance in New Hampshire, filed for bankruptcy and halted operations last month. Unfortunately, the company’s demise left individuals without health insurance, leaving them vulnerable to unaffordable medical costs.
Sharity Ministries provided a unique health insurance product. With its cost-sharing format, clients would buy into the program at a rate that’s typically far lower than that of regular health insurance. However, buying into the program came with no legal guarantee that Sharity Ministries would cover the cost of medical expenses.
Legal Action Against Sharity Ministries
Since 2019, Sharity Ministries had been implicated in legal action from the New Hampshire Insurance Department. In 2019, New Hampshire state regulators filed a Cease and Desist Order against Sharity after discovering that the company was deceiving its clients and providing healthcare insurance without obtaining the required certifications. This and other state investigations revealed problems with the organization, eventually leading it to file Chapter 11 protection.
Sharity Ministries’ website was updated soon after the filing, stating that the company would no longer provide health insurance services to its customers. The New Hampshire Insurance Department has stated that despite the organization’s bankruptcy filing, ongoing regulatory action against it will continue.
