Church Activity Medical Assistance

Church Activity Medical Assistance (CAMA) is a gratuitous, charitable assistance program administered by Deseret Mutual Benefit Administrators (DMBA) on behalf of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Church). CAMA is funded by the Church and is intended to further the Church’s general mission to help those in need. If an individual is injured while participating in a Church activity in the United States (not including U.S. territories or commonwealths) or Canada, local bishops* can request assistance for certain medical or funeral expenses. DMBA coordinates the assistance within the guidelines of the CAMA program.

No one is guaranteed or legally entitled to CAMA. CAMA is not health insurance, no-fault insurance, liability insurance, or a workers’ compensation fund. It does not provide liability protection or insurance for the Church, Church-owned property, or Church members. CAMA is a limited, discretionary and gratuitous assistance program that helps individuals injured while participating in a Church activity.
