* Is Eder Medical Plan coverage available
for pastors or church workers?

While Eder Health and Life Benefits offers an array of ancillary insurance products to pastors and employees who work 16 hours a week or more, Annual Conference delegates discontinued Eder Medical Plan coverage for the Ministers’ Group in 2007. Today, medical coverage through Eder Medical Plan is only available to affiliated employer groups.
