HB12-1054 - Simplify Procurement DHCPF Health Care Providers

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Simplification Of The Procurement Process For Providers Who Have Previously Been Approved To Participate In Health Care Programs Administered By The Department Of Health Care Policy And Financing.

The bill simplifies the procurement process by exempting the department of health care policy and financing (department) and a health care provider from certain state fiscal rule requirements concerning standard state contracts and commitment vouchers when the department has regulatory authority over the program and when the provider has already signed a department-approved provider application to provide services under department-administered programs or to bill for services provided under those programs.

Applicable programs include medicaid, the children's basic health plan, the Colorado indigent care program, the school health services program, services funded by the primary care fund, and the health and medical care program for old age pensioners. Eligible providers include health care providers, mental health care providers, pharmacists, home health agencies, and other providers authorized under the applicable department-administered programs who provide health care, health care coordination, or outreach, enrollment, or administrative support services.
