Connect with your peers; join the Colorado Medical Society for an upcoming educational or social event.

The Colorado Medical Society strongly advocated for members and your businesses last legislative session when lawmakers debated and passed a bill creating the Colorado Option, and CMS continued that advocacy during the ensuing stakeholder engagement and rule-making process. Now health insurers will begin building networks for their Colorado Option plans. Be prepared for these contract negotiations. Find out all you need to know at a members-only Virtual Grand Rounds webinar hosted by the Colorado Medical Society.
