Health Care Coverage Easy Enrollment Program
All people should have equal access to reproductive health care. And yet, for many uninsured Coloradans, financial costs create additional barriers to receiving the care they need.
The Health Care Coverage Easy Enrollment Program will make affordable health care more accessible for uninsured Coloradans. This bill creates an easy enrollment committee that will develop a process to connect uninsured individuals with subsidized and no-cost plans.
Reproductive and sexual health care is essential health care, and we should be doing all we can to make both more accessible during this public health crisis. However, with states across the country dealing with the financial realities of a global pandemic, reproductive and sexual health care programs have been threatened with severe reductions.
Colorado faced enormous budget cuts this year. Despite that, this budget bill largely maintained family planning and sex education funding.
Sick Leave For Employees
No person should have to choose between taking care of their health and keeping their job. Paid sick leave in Colorado was long overdue—but now, it's a reality.
This bill created the "Healthy Families and Workplaces Act" , which finally requires employers to provide paid sick leave to all employees.
Reimbursement For Telehealth Services
Health care needs, including sexual and reproductive care, don’t go away, even when our country is in a public health crisis.
This bill will protect and expand access to telehealth services that patients rely on, including mental health services, and will make sure that insurance will cover the care.
Health Insurance Affordability Enterprise
Everyone, no matter where they live or how much money they have, should have access to basic health care. Yet, vast health disparities continue to exist between those who face cost barriers to accessing care and those who do not.
This bill will reinvest the money insurance plans pay on the premiums they charge to increase the affordability of health insurance on the individual market, subsidize plans for people with low incomes, and lower costs for Coloradans who are eligible for premium tax credits.
