In January, a federal judge ordered the website of a health cost sharing ministry shuttered based on sufficient probable cause that the company was engaged in ongoing wire fraud, reports the Kansas City Star. St. Joseph, Missouri-based Medical Cost Sharing Inc. charged monthly premiums upward of $750 per month, but complaints against the group mounted over nonpayment of medical claims. According to the FBI and attorneys for the Department of Justice, members were all victims of an elaborate fraud scheme that spanned the better part of a decade.
