Hot Issues in Health brings together a diverse crowd of state legislators, regional and local policymakers, representatives from insurance carriers and health systems, consumer advocates, health care providers, researchers, students and journalists. Hosted by the nonpartisan Colorado Health Institute, the event has convened the state’s leading thinkers to discuss pressing issues related to health and health care for nearly 20 years.
Hot Issues in Health is Amendment 41 compliant. The Independent Ethics Commission ruled in 2014 that public officials would not violate Amendment 41 if they accept a complimentary registration to Hot Issues in Health. We confirmed with IEC staff in August 2019 that this ruling stands. You can read the IEC's ruling letter here.
