The Blue Ribbon Commission for Health Care Reform has developed a bold yet realistic package of recommendations for health reform. These recommendations are linked together in a comprehensive package that can be implemented in stages.
The Commission's final report details these recommendations. It also includes information on five alternative proposals evaluated by the Commission, as well as background information on the uninsured and health care costs in Colorado.
Twenty-four of 27 commissioners endorsed the Commission's recommendations - an unprecedented achievement, given the diverse backgrounds, perspectives and ideologies represented on the Commission. Three commissioners dissented and prepared two minority reports, which are included in the Commission's final report document.
The Commission's report lays out a vision for change -- a roadmap to reform.
