Proposed rule

Additional Information
Statutory Authority 10-1-109, and, 10-16-105.1(6)(b)(I), 10-16-105(7.2)(2012), 10-16-105.7(1)(e), 10-16-105.7(3)(c), and 10-16-109
Purpose/Objective of Rule The purpose of this regulation is to establish rules for the proper transition of policyholders covered under individual health benefit plans issued on or after March 23, 2010 through December 31, 2013, basic and standard health benefit plans, business group of one health benefit plans, and conversion coverage health benefit plans to the appropriate individual or small group health benefit plan pursuant to the requirements of Colorado law. Passage of HB13-1266 eliminated the basic and standard health benefit plans, business group of one, and conversion health benefit plans from the Colorado statutes, effective January 1, 2014, as no longer necessary due to statutory revisions made to bring Colorado law into alignment with federal law. The Division of Insurance finds, pursuant to 24-4-103(6)(a), C.R.S., that immediate adoption of this regulation is imperatively necessary to ensure carrier compliance with the recent changes to Colorado law, and to address the transition of individual health benefit plans, basic and standard health benefit plans, business group of one plans, and conversion plans to plans compliant with the requirements established by recently enacted HB 13-1266. Therefore, compliance with the requirements of 24-4-103, C.R.S., would be contrary to the public interest.
