California has moved a step closer to creating a regulatory framework for a new type of health plan.

The state Assembly voted earlier this week to approve Assembly Bill 1846,  a bill that would create the rules that would govern any Consumer Owned and Operated Plan (CO-OP) that does business in California. Drafters of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) added the CO-OP provisions in an effort to respond to concerns about a lack of competition in some states’ health insurance markets.
