Denver, CO – As the Senate sponsor of HB19-1168, State Innovation Waiver Reinsurance Program, Senator Kerry Donovan (D-Vail) released the following statement this afternoon:

“Rural Coloradans face the highest health insurance costs in the nation. This bill will create a reinsurance program that will result in lower prices across the individual market.

This legislation reflects one of our biggest priorities in the Senate and the most prominent concern I have heard from voters: the need to lower healthcare costs across the state. Simply put, this bill will have a real and immediate impact on Coloradans.

I look forward to working with my colleagues to pass this bipartisan bill through the legislature, and I am hopeful that Governor Polis will sign it into law.”
