While the nation continues to argue over health care reform proposals, Colorado plans to move forward. The first big step is SB 200, the Health Care Exchange Bill. While the Colorado General Assembly haggled over the details, ultimately the bill passed. SB 200 establishes a Board intended to represent broad community interests and charged with designing the exchange. While the federal law mandates that health care exchanges be formed for small groups by 2014 and for larger groups in 2017, Colorado intends to have its own exchange up and running before then.
