HB17-1115 Direct Primary Health Care Services

Sponsored by: Rep. Buck, Rep. Ginal, Sen. Kefalas, and Sen. Tate

HB17-1115 outlines and authorizes the practice of Direct Primary Care. Direct Primary Care is not subject to insurance. This allows doctors and patients to contract on a fee for service basis. This bill passed the Health Committee and the House Floor unanimously. We look forward to it passing in the Senate.

Telehealth – HB 15-1029

A bill that has recently passed is HB 15-1029, also referred to as Telehealth that many people have testified on behalf of.

  • This bill removes barriers and limits on telehealth so physicians can use this valuable tool whenever and wherever it is in the best interests of the patient.
  • It also makes sure that telehealth visits are treated just the same as in-person doctor-patient visits for health plan deductibles, co-payments, co-insurance, durational benefit limits, and annual lifetime benefit maximums.
  • The main point to take away from this bill is that this is a way for those in Colorado to receive their healthcare in a more convenient way that fits their needs.
