Cooperatives and Coalitions

Purchasing cooperatives are groups of large or small employers or in some cases, a combination of both, that join together to obtain health coverage for the cooperative as a single entity. The larger the cooperative, the more clout it has to negotiate favorable prices and coverage.

Texas law allows two or more employers to form a non-profit private cooperative for the purchase of small or large employer health benefit plans. One type of cooperative, the Health Group Cooperative, can be formed by any person, but it must have ten or more participating employers to be eligible to exercise its rights under law.
