What message do you want to get to your legislators?
HB19-1089 could have had a devastating effect on our practices. The bill proposed to exempt a person's earnings from garnishment if the person's family income did not exceed 400% of current federal poverty guidelines for medical debt.
Thanks to lobbying efforts by the collection agency industry, this bill did not pass out of committee.
Do your providers perform in –office procedures or procedures in an ASC? If so, SB19-110 may impact you.
Under current law, certain freestanding and office-based facilities performing outpatient procedures such as liposuction and radiation treatments are not regulated to the same extent as facilities within a hospital. The bill extends the jurisdiction of the department of public health and environment to license these facilities and to adopt rules governing their operation.
You’ve heard the news - A six-month investigation by 9News discovered common, emergency surgeries inside Denver-area hospitals that led to lawsuits, property liens and wage garnishments.

Please come and join the discussion in how to influence these bills for positive change. After all, if you are not at the table, you are on the menu!
