We Have a New Home

To Our Valued Stakeholders,

Please take note: We are in the process of moving our administrative offices to a new location. We will be at 4600 S. Ulster St., Suite 300, Denver, 80237 beginning Monday, April 2.

Our Board committee meetings on Monday, March 26, will be in our current location but the movers go to work as soon as those sessions adjourn. Administrative staff will be working in remote locations for the balance of the week while the move is under way.

We will provide new call-in information for the April 9 Board meeting with the agenda and support materials for the meeting. Those attending in person will want to go to the new address, which is in the Tech Center close to the I-25-I-225 interchange.

I hope to see you there.

In the News

The state Division of Insurance this week released comment on proposed federal rule changes to widen the availability of Association Health Plans (AHP). The letter to the federal Department of Labor points out concerns around the risk to consumers and the history of financial instability of such plans.

The Commonwealth Fund recently released survey results that the policy debate around the Affordable Care Act has created concern among Americans who gained coverage under the law that they may lose their health benefits. Concerning to us is the finding that three in 10 adults who have Marketplace or Medicaid coverage are pessimistic about maintaining it.

On the plus side, the Commonwealth Fund points out that Kaiser Family Foundation polling finds 54 percent of respondents have a favorable view of the Affordable Care Act, up four percentage points since January.

Take care,
