- (a) An insurer licensed in this state, or a hospital or medical service corporation authorized to do business in this
state, may, either directly or through a subsidiary or affiliate, organize and operate a health maintenance
organization under the provisions of this chapter. Two or more insurance companies, hospitals or medical service
corporations, or subsidiaries or affiliates of them, may jointly organize and operate a health maintenance

insurance or similar protection against the cost of care provided through a health maintenance organization and to
provide coverage in the event of the failure of the health maintenance organization to meet its obligations. The
enrollees of a health maintenance organization constitute a permissible group under this title. Under a contract
authorized by this subsection, the insurer or hospital or medical service corporation may make benefit payments to
