It has been getting harder to keep track of all the payer policy changes. There seems to have been a flurry of them this year (e.g., Anthem, UnitedHealthcare, etc.) that will likely impact your practice. The Colorado Medical Society advocates on behalf of physician practices with payers, regulators and legislators to reduce your hassle factors, ensure fair reimbursements, and ensure proper processing of claims. We need to hear from you about the payer issues you are facing! 

Did you know you have access to a searchable catalog of provider protection statutes that you can use in disputes with health plans? Know Your Legal Rights* contains decades of public policy victories that may assist you in your dealings with payers. Make sure the physicians in your practice are members of the Colorado Medical Society so you have access to this great resource today!

As we approach the upcoming legislative session, we need to hear from you concerning issues impacting your practice. We can only be as effective as the intelligence we gather from those of you on the “front lines.” We need to hear from you! Please contact us at payerissues@cms.org with your payer issues.


*Accessing Know Your Legal Rights requires a CMS member login. Member physicians’ staff can obtain their own login by contacting Tim Yanetta at tim_yanetta@cms.org
