FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A Christians-only health care ministry that was forced out of Kentucky last year would be allowed back under legislation approved by the Senate on Wednesday.
The bill, which passed 35-0, would exempt Medi-Share, a Florida-based cost-sharing ministry, from state insurance regulations.
Franklin County Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate ordered Medi-Share to stop operating in Kentucky last year at the request of the Department of Insurance because it didn't comply with insurance regulations.
The program resembles secular insurance in some ways but only allows participation by people who pledge to live Christian lives with no smoking, drinking, using drugs or engaging in sex outside of marriage.
The measure now goes to the House, where it is expected to pass.
