How CHA Is Driving Change
Colorado Hospital Association and its members are committed to driving change within the health care industry by partnering with other sectors to implement the HFMA guidelines for price transparency. Learn more about what CHA is doing to bring price and quality transparency to the industry below.
Hospital Provider Fee
CHA was instrumental in the 2017 passing of the hospital provider fee (HPF). The HPF has improved access to health care for tens of thousands of Colorado’s most vulnerable citizens without drawing any money from Colorado’s General Fund. To date, the hospital-paid tax has enabled 305,650 previously uninsured Coloradans to receive health care coverage.
Where for Care Campaign
The Where for Care Campaign was a consumer education campaign aimed at helping consumers pick the right location to receive the right kind of health care: primary, urgent or emergent.
Financial Health of Colorado Hospitals
Under the leadership of the Association’s Board of Trustees, CHA has developed this inaugural report examining the financial health of Colorado hospitals, based on publicly available data from the Medicare Cost Report.
