A proposed bill that would institute a one-year moratorium on insurance mandates aims to wipe out a number of measures slated for next session, including legislation
that would require Colorado insurance companies to cover maternity care and birth control.
The moratorium is being proposed by the Colorado State Association of Health Underwriters
(CSAHU), according to CSAHU lobbyist Cindy Sovine-Miller. Although the health insurance industry group is still working to land Senate sponsors, Sovine-Miller said she expects Ellen Roberts, a Durango Republican, and Kathleen Curry, a Western Slope Democrat-turned-Independent
to carry the bill in the House.
