Scott Reddig, CEO of Christian Care Ministry, joined the organization in February of 2019. This 26-year Melbourne-based non-profit administers the Medi-Share program, an affordable alternative to health insurance for the Christian community.
A graduate of The Ohio State University, Reddig has 31 years of experience in the property and casualty insurance industry, serving as Chief Actuary with three different companies and Chief Operating Officer for Guide One Insurance, one of the largest insurers of churches in the country.
Medi-Share employs more than 700 employees, with 358 at the Melbourne headquarters and the remainder at the secondary location in Colorado Springs and working remotely.
Reddig states that his top priority is to make sure that Medi-Share remains a valuable and viable health care solution. “It’s no secret that the health care landscape is constantly changing, including the cost of care. No matter who is in office, health care will always be a hot topic for Americans because it touches us all. My goal as CEO is to strengthen the Medi-Share program, build awareness of this health care alternative across America and ultimately grow the sharing experience beyond the 400,000+ members who are currently a part of this vibrant community.”
It is not just the Medi-Share model of sharing that intrigues Reddig, but the workforce that supports it. “Both are authentic Christian communities that help one another. Both demonstrate Christ’s call to love one another and to live as He encouraged us. It is a model, dare I say a ‘business’ model, for sharing health care needs that isn’t insurance – it’s better than insurance. It is also a model that doesn’t just make this a ‘great place to work,’ but it’s simply the way the workplace ought to be.”
