Each year I post the current information on who covers Christian Science care – information that the Federal Committee on Publication office has been collecting for the past several years. Here is their latest information:
Various U.S. federal, state, and private health insurance plans provide for the reimbursement of Christian Science nursing care and practitioner treatment. The U.S. Federal Office is actively working to increase the availability of insurance options that cover these types of care. Seventeen Christian Science nursing facilities across the United States are Medicare providers. (Find out which ones from the Commission for Accreditation of Christian Science Nursing Organizations/Facilities, Inc.)
Christian Science services qualify as tax-deductible medical expenses under Section 213(d) of the IRS code. Check out our article on health savings accounts (HSAs) for more information.
By clicking on the links below, you can find a sampling of insurance plans we have on record that accommodate Christian Science care.
If you are aware of other plans we haven’t listed, please be in touch with our Federal office.
Does the health insurance plan offered by your employer not include Christian Science care services? Write to your employer to ask that Christian Science care services be included as a covered benefit!
