It goes to show that anti-Catholicism is thriving...
If the Amish, Medi-share are exempt, then Catholics should be exempt.

Medi-share is indeed a unique program for providing assistance with medical care, but unlike health insurance programs this route uses blatant discrimination to prevent certain individuals from benefiting from its service. Mychristiancare.org specifically points out that only those engaging in sexual intercourse within a Christian marriage are allowed to join. This immediately eliminates gay, lesbian, and transgender individuals from enrolling in Medi-share. The program also places limits on services it covers based upon religious beliefs and states specifically that abortions will not be covered under any circumstance.
To be clear, Medi-share is not an insurance program. Medi-share operates as a non-profit group and while members pay into a group fund each month, the money is never Medi-shares money. Furthermore, Medi-share is not required to pay any bill, nor keep cash reserves on hand.http://www.newsonhealthca re.com/the-ins-and-outs-of-med i-share/

You can read about the Exemption at the link below.Religious Conscious Exemptions
There are, however, some healthcare bill exemptions. First, the new law creates a religious conscience exemption for those who are members and faithful adherents of a recognized religious sect or division. The provision may exempt those individuals from the mandatory health insurance purchase requirement if they are members of religions that have established tenets or teachings that bar the acceptance of the benefits of any private or public insurance.
The religious conscience exemption is defined as:
RELIGIOUS CONSCIENCE EXEMPTION. Such term shall not include any individual for any month if such individual has in effect an exemption under section 1311(d)(4)(H) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which certifies that such individual is a member of a recognized religious sect of division thereof described in section 1402(g)(l) and an adherent of established tenets or teachings of such sect or division as described in such section.
