In October 2018, the Task Force to Study Cooperative Purchasing for Health Insurance was formed by the General Assembly (Chapter 307, Acts of 2018; Chapter 110, Acts of 2019).

The Task Force is studying models of cooperative purchasing of health insurance. Further, the Task Force is to recommend what health insurance benefit options should be offered to satellite organizations, such as nonprofit organizations, county governments, municipal corporations, and retirees. Finally, the Task Force will make recommendations on minimizing and combining administrative costs, and any other ways to control health insurance costs while providing a variety of options.

Authorization for the Task Force ends September 30, 2022.
