Mandate Question

What do Christian Scientists and others do under an insurance mandate?  Is there a way for them to purchase insurance which only covers the medical procedures their creed approves of?  A (very) cursory Googling returned no interesting information, even though the Church of Christ, Scientist is HQ'ed in Massachusetts so I would think they would have been dealing with this for a while

Christian Science-specific plans exist (e.g.), but since the mandate is not only to buy insurance but insurance that is acceptably comprehensive I wonder if these pass muster under our new regime.

Surely this isn't the only creed which prohibits some types of medical procedures.  What are the consequences for the rest?
