Individual Christian Science insurance benefits
The Christian Science Provider Network is a nonprofit 501(c)(3)) organization that promotes and extends the religion of Christian Science. We provide support for the legal rights of individual Christian Scientists in the United States to utilize benefits in their health insurance policies that allow for and designate payment for skilled Christian Science nursing care.
Access to those Christian Science insurance benefits has proved to be difficult because of a lack of recognition for these legally defined benefits, and a lack of established processes within the insurance industry. The Christian Science Provider Network’s purpose is to correct those impositions and to enable Christian Scientists to access and pay for the care they need when relying on Christian Science treatment, as Mrs. Eddy established.
