Health Insurance Cooperative
HELENA – Deep within the “fiscal cliff” deal approved by Congress this week was a cut few people expected or knew of: Axing federal funds for new, nonprofit health insurance cooperatives.
HELENA — A budget deal cut by Congress this weekend preserved most of the funding for start-up loans to health insurance cooperatives, including one proposed in Montana — but not before Republicans, including U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg, sought to eliminate the money.
