URGENT Action Needed: Protect Patient Access in Colorado!

HB20-1085 Action Alert Email

Thanks to the efforts of AAC and our lobbying team over the past year, as well as coordination with other complimentary health practices, the Colorado Senate and House completed passage of House Bill 20-1085 – Prevention of Substance Abuse Disorders.

This legislation will reduce future opioid dependency in Colorado and provide optimal access to necessary rehabilitative services. 

Key Points for Providers in House Bill 20-1085: 

  • Insurers must provide coverage for nonpharmacological treatment as an alternative to opioids.
  • A minimum of six acupuncture, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and chiropractic visits must be authorized at a copay amount that does not exceed the copay amount of primary care visits. 
  • Insurers may not require prior authorization for these visits.
