FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Members of a Christians- only health insurance plan lost coverage on Thursday under a judge's order to cease operations.
Franklin County Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate found that Medi-Share doesn't comply with Department of Insurance rules and won't be allowed to operate in Kentucky.
That means some 800 people don't have coverage.
"We just don't think the Department of Insurance or Judge Wingate thought through the reality that you have 800 people now that, overnight, have nothing," said Medi-Share President Tony Meggs. "The state, with Medi-Share, should come together to provide some type of transition for these people."
Meggs said attorneys are urging Wingate to reconsider the abrupt end to the program to allow time for members to find other insurance coverage.
