In a welcome development, GuideStone has announced their previously-closed Personal Plans for healthcare are now available for coverage at any time through an "Evidence of Good Health" application.
Since 2015 EFCA churches, as well as other churches and ministries who are clients of FCMM, have had access to the group health insurance programs of GuideStone Financial Resources (the church benefits board that serves Southern Baptist and select evangelical ministries). The GuideStone health plans are self-insured but are administered by Highmark (the Blue Cross medical network) and Express Scripts pharmacy network.
In conjunction with the denominational partnership, GuideStone has developed insurance solutions that provide group health plans to any size group, starting with two eligible employees. And for churches with fewer than ten employees who may not be ready to offer group insurance, the Personal Plans can fill the gap.
