2019 Legislative Priorities 

Lead by Example

Colorado hospitals and health systems believe that all segments of the industry have a shared responsibility to develop solutions to the most pressing challenges facing our health care system. Getting there will take time, but hospitals will lead the way by:

  • Taking Responsibility for Pricing Transparency for Consumers
  • Leading the Charge for Freestanding Emergency Department Licensure
  • Supporting Efforts to Reauthorize the Medical Practice Act and the Colorado Professional Review Act

Simplify the Health Care System

The health care system in Colorado has developed and evolved over many decades into a system that is complicated for both consumers and providers. Hospitals will work to simplify the system by:

  • Working to Improve Efficiency in Health Care Billing
  • Honoring Patient Wishes and Streamlining the Delivery of Health Care Through the Creation of an Advanced Directives Registry
  • Advocating for Rural Hospital Regulatory Relief
