10 Bills in 10 Years
As part of the Colorado Health Institute’s 10-year anniversary, we looked back over the past decade to identify the state’s most impactful health care bills. Narrowing the list wasn’t easy, but in the end, we selected laws falling into three categories:
- Restructuring: Laws that fundamentally changed the structure of Colorado’s health care system, either by transforming funding mechanisms, regulatory oversight, state agency composition, delivery of care or other key aspects.
- Innovating: Laws that fostered significant health care innovations, setting the stage for advancements that are transforming Colorado’s health care landscape.
- Expanding Coverage: Laws extending health insurance coverage to more Colorado residents. Colorado has continued a fairly steady path of health care policies aimed at increasing coverage for vulnerable populations.
