Health Care

Cooperative health maintenance organizations (HMOs) were organized after passage of the federal HMO Act of 1973 to help consumers address the problems of rising health-care costs and physician shortages. Today, health care cooperatives provide a mix of clinics, services, and insurance. Cooperative HMOs are not-for-profit providers that own medical facilities and employ medical staff, while other health care cooperatives offer insurance only.
