Schweitzer will support health cooperative idea

Schweitzer meets with Morrison (right) on Tuesday-KXLH photo(HELENA)- Governor Brian Schweitzer is going to through his support behind a plan to establish a statewide health cooperative to give people alternative health care coverage.

KXLH reports Schweitzer took the position after meeting with former State Auditor John Morrison Tuesday. Morrison has been advocating the co-op idea as a means of setting up a system to operate under the federal Affordable Health Care Act. Morrison says the plan would give Montanans an option to federally-mandated health care if it's approved. 

Morrison told Schweitzer the co-op would bring together providers that would compete with other insurance companies.
