The bill creates the health care cost analysis task force (task force).

The president of the senate, the minority leader of the senate, the speaker
of the house of representatives, and the minority leader of the house of
representatives shall each appoint 2 legislative members to the task force.
The governor shall appoint 9 members to the task force. The executive
directors of the departments of human services, public health and
environment, and health care policy and financing, or their designees, also
serve on the task force.
The task force is required to issue a request for proposals and
select an analyst to complete a health care cost analysis of 4 health care
financing systems. The health care financing systems to be analyzed are:
  • The current health care financing system, in which
residents receive health care coverage from private and
public insurance carriers or are uninsured;
  • A public option system in which health benefit plans are
sold through, and revenues and premiums are received
from, the Colorado health benefit exchange, with additional
funding as necessary through the general fund;
  • A multi-payer universal health care financing system, in
which competing insurance carriers or health maintenance
organizations receive payments from a public financing
authority; and
  • A publicly financed and privately delivered universal
health care system that directly compensates providers.
The analyst is required to use the same specified criteria when
conducting the analysis of each health care financing system.
The task force is required to report the findings of the analyst to
the general assembly.
The task force may seek, accept, and expend gifts, grants, and
donations for the analysis. The general assembly may appropriate money
to the health care cost analysis cash fund for the purposes of the task
force, the analysis, and reporting requirements.
