CMS leaders and staff join Sen. Irene Aguilar, MD, to watch Gov. John Hickenlooper sign SB 14-159 into law.
Gov. John Hickenlooper signed Senate Bill 14-159 into law on Thursday, May 29. This bill, “Implement Medical Clean Claims Recommendations,” advances the process for the standardization of claims edits. It extends the work of the Clean Claims Task Force by two years as the Colorado Medical Society and other stakeholders work to federalize the project under the Affordable Care Act.
CMS hopes the culmination of the work of the task force – a huge undertaking involving millions of edits – will save physicians’ time and money by reducing transaction costs and increase physician satisfaction.
The bill was sponsored by Sen. Irene Aguilar, MD, and Rep. Dianne Primavera.
