Hot Issues in Health Care: A Reading List

The Colorado Health Institute’s Hot Issues in Health Care conference set for December 14 and 15 will explore what this year’s elections mean for health policy in Colorado and the rest of the nation. With than in mind, we've put together a short reading list to help attendees prepare for a great conference and lively conversations:

Our Election 2016 page has interactive maps that help explain the results and contains research and analyses conducted by the Colorado Health Institute.  

 “What Just Happened?” offers post-election insights by Senior Communications Expert Joe Hanel. Published the morning after the election, it provides a breakdown of voting results in Colorado and ideas on what to expect for the Affordable Care Act under a Trump presidency.

Our Aid-in-Dying analysis covers the basics of the law and summarizes both pro and con arguments.  Colorado voters approved the End-of-Life Options Act by a vote of 65 percent to 35 percent, but many questions remain about implementing the law. Catch up on the issue before sitting in on a panel of experts at Hot Issues who will discuss Colorado’s future and what we can learn from other states.

Curious about which of Colorado’s health-related ballot measures didn’t make it? You can find reports on Amendment 72 (tobacco tax) and ColoradoCare (universal health coverage) on our website. 

CHI's Insurance Rates page contains in-depth analyses of where premium rates stand in Colorado and what to expect in 2017. An analysis of Medicaid Expansion in Colorado is also available on our website.

We hope this reading list will help orient you to the conference and the challenges ahead for health policy.  The final agenda for Hot Issues in Health Care is now on our website.

Have a great a week!
