Health System Reform

The passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) by Congress in 2010 created a new reality for patients and physicians. The shift of power in Washington, DC, in 2016 has meant more uncertainty as a replacement plan develops. The first iteration is the American Health Care Act.

Federal health care reform, in whatever form it takes, requires ongoing physician participation and leadership to help reshape the broken health care system. CMS has pressed the case for health system reform in Colorado for years and we are committed to working with physicians and patients to find ways to improve cost effectiveness and quality of care for all Coloradans.

At CMS we strive to translate the seismic changes that are occurring across the systems and how they will affect the profession of medicine. The links and resources below offer a wealth of information.

If you would like more information about health care reform then please contact Chet Seward in the CMS office.
