Find the Right Medical Coverage for Your Staff

Did you know? According to a study conducted by Texas Baptists1, only 24% of pastors have health coverage through their church, while small church pastors are 60% less likely to have health coverage than large church pastors.

At GuideStone, we recognize the unique challenges that pastors face, and our hope is to guide and equip your team to alleviate the stress around choosing the right medical plan. To get started, listen to one of our GuideStone insurance experts discuss four common medical options available to you so you can be equipped to select a benefit plan that's a good fit for your ministry, your team and your budget.

A Guide to Six Common Health Care Strategies

Today, there are more options – and more rules – than at any other time in history. To help you determine the right choice for your church, ministry or Christian institution, we've outlined the six most common modern health care strategies we've encountered — including both the benefits and risks of each.

Special Open Enrollment Information

When researching health care options for your ministry, keep in mind that the federal government has declared a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) that re-opens the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace from February 15 to August 15, 2021. This allows you and your team to enroll in marketplace plans for 2021 without the need for a qualifying event.2

Doug Grissom, Senior Pastor, Twin Cities Baptist Church
We were going to have to close our doors. Property and Casualty Insurance was so high. The quote from GuideStone saved us a little over 60%, but the coverage was comparable - greater in some areas. It was quick, easy and extremely timely for us. GuideStone’s coverage allowed us to keep our doors open.”

We chose GuideStone Property and Casualty initially for cost reasons. We saved over $5000 versus our current carrier, but it's also the trust factor. I've known GuideStone for a long time, and I feel like I can trust them with the expertise they bring to the table.”
