DENVER — Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017 — Gov. Hickenlooper issued the following statement on the President’s executive order addressing health insurance markets.
“The White House's action today threatens to make health insurance more expensive and less stable. It sabotages the protections many Coloradans rely upon and makes it easier for insurance companies to deny Coloradans the care they need. This order will destabilize health insurance for small businesses, ultimately resulting in higher premiums. We urge the Administration and Congress to end partisan efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and work across the aisle, and with Governors, to find real solutions so that families and small businesses have access to affordable quality health care.”
