Medical Services Board (MSB)

The Medical Services Board (MSB) was established by law effective July 1, 1994. It is the responsibility of the Medical Services Board to adopt the rules that govern the Department's programs. The Board has eleven members, with at least one member from each congressional district and no more than six members from the same political party. Members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate.

Medical Services Board meetings are scheduled for the second Friday of each month and are open to the public. The Board hears each proposed rule twice to allow time for the public to participate. For more information see our Stakeholder Engagement Protocols. A visual display of stakeholder engagement opportunities in the rulemaking process is located here.

If you are interested in being considered for service on the Medical Services Board, you can access the application on the Governor’s Office of Boards and Commissions web page.

A member of the public may email the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies to request a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) from the agency proposing rule changes, which is made publicly available when it is completed.

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies provides a mechanism for citizens to receive Notices of Proposed Rulemaking in their areas of interest. When you sign up to receive Regulatory Notices, you are provided with information on the proposed rules, its public hearing and an effortless way to request that the rulemaking agency complete a cost-benefit analysis of the new or amended rules.
