Posted August 02, 2018 09:13:13 A Christian medical insurance company wants to take advantage of the growing number of atheists who are receiving health care coverage through an atheist health insurance company.
“We are not looking to discriminate against anyone.
We are not going to discriminate between people who believe in God and people who do not,” Atheist Health Plans spokesman Josh Gershon told Fox News.
“We are just going to be very open and transparent about it.”
The move is part of an emerging trend among insurance companies to include atheist and humanist health plans on their policies.
Gershon said the company has been in talks with a number of insurance carriers, but it is still “evaluating whether we can be a part of their insurance.”
The new atheist health plan would cover a maximum of $7,500 for an individual, $25,000 for a family, $50,000 or $100,000 per year for an annual deductible.
The insurance company would also offer a $100 annual limit on out-of-pocket costs for health insurance claims.
“This is a big step in the right direction,” Gershon said.
“It’s the first time that a health insurance provider has come out and acknowledged that there is a market for this.”
The plan will be available on the new Atheist Medical Insurance website.
