Additional Information
Statutory Authority 10-1-109, 10-16-105(2)(b), 10-16-105.7(3)(c) and 10-16-109
Purpose/Objective of Rule The purpose of this emergency regulation is to establish rules governing enrollment periods for individual and group health benefit plans in accordance with Article 16 of Title 10 of Colorado Revised Statutes, and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, Pub. L. No. 111-148, 124 Stat. 119 (2010), and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, Pub. L. No. 111-152, 124 Stat. 1029 (2010), together referred to as the “Affordable Care Act” (ACA), along with the implementing federal regulations for the ACA. The Division of Insurance (Division) 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, to address the individual and group health benefit plan enrollment requirements established by recently enacted HB 13-1266, to comply with the ACA, and to comply with federal regulations implementing the ACA. Therefore, compliance with the requirements of § 24-4-103, C.R.S., would be contrary to the public interest. This emergency regulation replaces emergency regulation 13-E-09 in its entirety.
