The Accountable Care Act included a provision to help create non-profit cooperative payers in each state through low interest loans. Rocky Mountain Farmer’s Union won the bid for Colorado and created the Colorado HealthOP. We are member governed.
A cooperative is a business that consists of a group of people working together for mutual economic, social and cultural benefit. We are building the Colorado HealthOP with the belief that our members mutually want great healthcare at a great price.
