About Colorado HealthOP
Colorado HealthOP is Colorado’s first statewide nonprofit health insurance cooperative (CO-OP). Colorado HealthOP was established in response to the growing demand for feasible, affordable healthcare for individuals and small businesses throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
With a board of directors and executive team that have more than 330 years of combined healthcare experience, Colorado HealthOP knows what it takes to build a new alternative to the traditional health insurance model — one that is focused on people, not profits.
Our CO-OP Model
As a member-driven health plan, we give our members a voice in their healthcare and reward healthy behaviors. We strive to pay for quality medical care as efficiently as possible, support and improve individual health, and decrease healthcare costs for our members.
Colorado HealthOP was formed as a nonprofit organization in March 2012 and approved for federal funding within the Affordable Care Act in July 2012. Sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union (RMFU) Educational and Charitable Foundation, Colorado HealthOP builds on the strength and traditions of cooperative development that has been RMFU’s cornerstone since 1907.
Plans are available through Connect for Health Colorado and independent brokers.
