Colorado needs a public health insurance option
Signed into law in June.
Too many Coloradans are struggling to afford the health insurance and care they need. Colorado needs a public option now. Vote for HB21-1232.
Why is this important?
Too many Coloradans are struggling to afford the health insurance and care they need. People shouldn't have to choose between taking care of their health and filing for bankruptcy or losing the roof overhead. The healthcare industry has not controlled runaway health care costs. Instead of taking accountability to lower costs, they spend millions of dollars to keep health care unaffordable and inaccessible.
Colorado leaders are discussing the right solution for Colorado. They need to hear your story.
CONTACT YOUR COLORADO STATE LEGISLATORS AND ASK THEM TO SUPPORT THE COLORADO HEALTH INSURANCE OPTION
This bill will make health insurance more affordable for individuals and small businesses while improving the available plans' value with health equity-focused standardized plans.
It helps address health inequities created by systemic racism, which are unjust and costly for our healthcare system and our communities' health as a whole, by providing pre-deductible coverage for services that address conditions that disproportionately impact people of color.
It is time to hold the healthcare industry accountable and offer a better, more affordable health care option.
