Narrowing the list wasn’t easy, but in the end, we selected laws falling into three categories:
- Restructuring: Laws that fundamentally changed the structure of Colorado’s health care system, either by transforming funding mechanisms, regulatory oversight, state agency composition, delivery of care or other key aspects.
- Innovating: Laws that fostered significant health care innovations, setting the stage for advancements that are transforming Colorado’s health care landscape.
- Expanding Coverage: Laws extending health insurance coverage to more Colorado residents. Colorado has continued a fairly steady path of health care policies aimed at increasing coverage for vulnerable populations.
