Upsetting the balance

In 2013 Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA) was a self-insured nonprofit with nearly 5,000 employees and $1.9 million in reserve. Changes to a federal health law and a series of high-cost claims began to upset this balance. By 2015 its reserve was gone, replaced by a $3.1 million deficit.
