Today the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative celebrates the approval of a federal waiver that allows the Colorado Option as approved by the legislature (HB21-1232) to move full steam ahead. The approval of Colorado’s Section 1332 Innovation Waiver Amendment means that millions of dollars will be reinvested in making health insurance more affordable for Coloradans who have previously been left out.

Proposed Health Insurance Rates Jump Unexpectedly
