Hide Featured Image

The Division is seeking comments on the following draft proposed emergency regulation:

The purpose of this emergency regulation is to require carriers to cover the costs of patient transfers between facilities during the state’s COVID-19 recovery.

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 as ensuring facilities have adequate resources and availability to treat COVID-19 patients is imperative to preserve the health of the citizens of Colorado. Therefore, compliance with the requirements of § 24-4-103, C.R.S., would be contrary to the public interest.

The Division is requesting informal comments be submitted to no later than 5 PM, September 24, 2021.

This draft revised emergency regulation, as well as other draft bulletins and regulations currently released for informal public comment, can be found on our page for Draft Regulations and Bulletins for Informal Comments
