PPACA: Energy and Commerce Eyes CO-OPs
by Arthur D. Postal
REPUBLICANS AT THE HOUSE
Energy and Commerce Committee are
asking for evidence that organizers of
the new “CO-OP” program cooperative
health insurers can pay back CO-OP
startup and solvency loans.
The Republican committee lead-
ers have sent a letter asking for
documents relating to the Consumer
Operated and Oriented Plan (CO-OP)
to Marilyn Tavenner, the acting ad-
ministrator of the federal Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
