OPPOSE HB 22-1269
PROTECT PRO-LIFE, FAITH-BASED HEALTH CARE SHARING MINISTRIES

 

shieldYour religious freedom to continue to act on your choice regarding what’s right for your family, your fundamental right of being a part of the OneShare Health Family, is under threat.

Over 1.5 million Americans are currently in healthcare sharing programs and this bill affects over 50,000 Coloradans.

However, the Colorado House of Representatives will soon vote on whether to pass HB 22-1269. Contrary to the assertions made by the committee chairman, HB 22-1269 is NOT a compromise supported by the majority of Ministries who support protecting these religious exercises. Backroom agreements were made to change the Bill and put it before the House Insurance Committee. This appalling decision will put your religious liberties at risk.

We are confident your state representatives will do the right thing and oppose the proposed legislation to protect Christians' fundamental right to choose a health care solution that matches their needs and their beliefs. But this can only happen with your help!

 

 

What Will HB 22-1269 Mean for
Coloradans Like Me?

 

HB 22-1269:
  • Will Shackle the Religious Liberties of Coloradans.
    This harmful legislation would significantly expand the jurisdiction of the Department of Insurance over religious ministries. The bill grants the government bureaucracy the power to impose unlimited requirements on Health Care Sharing Ministries as part of an onerous registration ordeal - or else be shut down in Colorado.
  • Regulates Health Care Sharing Ministries.
    HB 22-1269 directly threatens religious freedom by requiring Health Care Sharing Ministries to comply with its incoherent and unworkable regulatory scheme, while imposing no such requirements on for-profit, secular health care sharing organizations.
  • Gives the Dept of Insurance unlimited power.
    This subjects ministries to even greater bureaucratic scrutiny than health insurers.
  • Would conflict with ACA Exemption.
    While thirty-one states and the Federal government have laws on the books explicitly exempting Health Care Sharing Ministries from insurance law, recognizing that they are not insurance. This bill would send Colorado in exactly the opposite direction from the rest of the country.

The Colorado House of Representatives will soon vote on HB 22-1269. There will be a committee hearing on this bill as soon as April 1, 2022, so we urge you to hustle before your choice is gone.

Colorado members and supporters of Health Care Sharing Ministries should contact their Colorado House representative and their Colorado Senator and urge them to OPPOSE HB 22-1269 and its discriminatory treatment of thousands of religious Coloradans.

This freedom of choice is an exercise of their protected religious liberties; that freedom of independence to choose what’s best for themselves and their families. Now, it is at stake.
