Last session, Rep. Bob Rankin (R-Carbondale) and I worked incredibly hard to pass a bill to implement an insurance reform called “reinsurance,” which would reduce premiums on the individual market by 15-30% for various regions of the state.
Here in Colorado, we’re not going back to the days of discriminating against those with preexisting conditions. We must move forward and work together to reduce costs and expand access to quality health care.
Though our reinsurance bill was defeated by the Senate Republicans, I’m proud of the bipartisan work we did in the House. Rep. Rankin and I are already in discussions about running the bill again next session.
