Summary

The bill codifies a number of preventive health care services
currently required to be covered by health insurance carriers pursuant to

the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and adds them
to the current list of services required to be covered by Colorado health
insurance carriers, which services are not subject to policy deductibles,
copayments, or coinsurance. The bill expands certain preventive health
care services to include osteoporosis screening; urinary incontinence
screening; and counseling, prevention, screening, and treatment of a
sexually transmitted infection (STI).
Current law requires a health care provider or facility to perform
a diagnostic exam for an STI and subsequently treat the STI at the request
of a minor patient. The bill allows a health care provider to administer,
dispense, or prescribe preventive measures or medications where
applicable. The consent of a parent is not a prerequisite for a minor to
receive preventive care, but a health care provider shall counsel the minor
on the importance of bringing the minor's parent or legal guardian into the
minor's confidence regarding the services.
Current law requires the executive director of the department of
health care policy and financing to authorize reimbursement for medical
or diagnostic services provided by a certified family planning clinic. The
bill removes the requirement that services be provided by a certified
family planning clinic and authorizes reimbursement for family planning
services and family-planning-related services provided by any licensed
health care provider.
