Governor John Hickenlooper signed a bill earlier this month that sets the stage for the creation of Colorado’s own health insurance exchange. KUNC’s Erin O’Toole talks with Jeff Nuttall, publisher of the Northern Colorado Business Report, about the importance to residents and businesses.
Republicans in the Colorado House of Representatives split widely to approve a health insurance exchange bill on Wednesday that will change the way 1 million Coloradans buy health insurance beginning in 2014.
A controversial healthcare exchange bill is nearing the end of its legislative journey at the state house. It cleared its final committee on Tuesday with both Republican and Democratic support and then was quickly sent to the house floor for a brief debate.
