Health Care Coverage Easy Enrollment Program

Abstract

The bill creates the Colorado affordable health care coverage easy enrollment program (program) for the purpose of leveraging the tax filing process to connect uninsured Coloradans to free or subsidized health care coverage. The program will allow Coloradans to ask on their state income tax returns for the Colorado health benefit exchange (exchange) to assess whether uninsured household members are potentially eligible for free or subsidized health care coverage. If the tax filer requests that the eligibility of uninsured household members be assessed under the program, the tax filer will receive information about coverage options and assistance with enrollment. The bill creates the affordable health care coverage easy enrollment advisory committee (advisory committee) to guide implementation of the program. The advisory committee will be chaired by the executive director of the exchange and the executive director of the department of revenue (department) and will include representatives of the department of health care policy and financing, the division of insurance in the department of regulatory agencies, consumer advocacy groups, health care consumers, small employers, health insurance carriers, tax preparers, and insurance producers. The department is required to implement the tax forms and schedules created by the advisory committee and to share the tax information gathered, as authorized by individual tax filers, with the exchange. The executive director of the department shall promulgate rules to implement the new tax forms and schedules and to implement the authorized sharing of the tax information provided on the state individual income tax return forms for the purpose of enrolling uninsured individuals in a health care coverage affordability program. (Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
