The Division would like to provide notice that the Commissioner has adopted the following emergency regulation:
- Emergency Regulation 22-E-02 - Concerning Prior Authorizations for Durable Medial Equipment and Prescription Refills
The purpose of this emergency regulation is to require carriers to provide covered persons impacted by the Marshall and Middle Fork fires with access to durable medical equipment (DME) and prescription drugs without a requirement for prior authorization.
The Division of Insurance finds, pursuant to § 24-4-103(6)(a), C.R.S., that immediate adoption of this regulation is imperatively necessary for the preservation of public health, safety, or welfare of those individuals impacted by the fires to ensure access to necessary healthcare services. Therefore, compliance with the requirements of § 24-4-103, C.R.S., would be contrary to the public interest.
This emergency regulation was adopted on January 11, 2022.
