SB17-003 - Repeal Colorado Health Benefit Exchange

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning the repeal of the 'Colorado Health Benefit Exchange Act'.

In 2010, pursuant to the enactment of federal law that allowed each state to establish a health benefit exchange option through state law or opt to participate in a national exchange, the general assembly enacted the 'Colorado Health Benefit Exchange Act' (act). The act created the state exchange, a board of directors (board) to implement the exchange, and a legislative health benefits exchange implementation review committee to make recommendations to the board. The bill repeals the act, effective January 1, 2018, and allows the exchange to continue for one year for the purpose of winding up its affairs. The bill also requires the board, on the last day of the wind-up period, to transfer any unencumbered money that remains in the exchange to the state treasurer, who shall transfer the money to the general fund.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
