the �Affordable Care Act.� The Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011, Pub.



112-10, which amended the Affordable Care Act, was enacted on April 15, 201 1. Section 1322 of the Affordable Care Act created the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan program (CO-OP program) to foster the creation of new consumer-governed, private, nonprofit health insurance issuers, known as �CO-OPs.� In addition to improving consumer choice and plan accountability, the CO-OP program also seeks to promote integrated models of care and enhance competition in the Affordable Insurance Exchanges established under sections 1311 and 1321 of the Affordable Care Act.

The statute provides loans to capitalize eligible prospective CO-OPs with a goal of having at least one CO-OP in each State.

The statute permits the funding of multiple CO-OPs in any State, provided that there is sufficient funding to capitalize at least one CO-OP in each State.

Congress provided budget authority of $ 3. 8 billion for the program.

The statute directs the Secretary to give priority to applicants that will offer CO-OP qualified health plans on a Statewide basis, will use integrated care models, and have significant private support.
