SB14-050 - Financial Assistance In Colorado Hospitals

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Financial Assistance In Colorado Hospitals.

Current law requires each hospital to make information regarding financial assistance available to each patient. The bill specifies the information that must be included.

Current law requires hospitals to limit the amounts charged to uninsured qualified patients to the lowest negotiated rate from a private health plan. The bill changes that limit for patients who fall below 400% of the federal poverty line to the medicare reimbursement rate plus 20%.

The bill requires the department of public health and environment to promulgate rules and to evaluate each hospital for compliance at the time of licensing and license renewal.
