Oversight Committee

The Legislative Health Benefit Exchange Implementation Review Committee was established by Senate Bill 11-200, passed by the General Assembly in 2011, to help guide the implementation of  Connect for Health Colorado (with the legal name Colorado Health Benefit Exchange), review certain financial decisions, make recommendations to the General Assembly and protect the interests of Coloradans. During the First Regular Session of the Seventieth General Assembly, both houses passed legislation amending the name and responsibilities of the Committee. The Committee is now referred to as the Colorado Health Insurance Exchange Oversight Committee (Oversight Committee). Learn more about the Oversight Committee.
