Hospital Provider Fee Information for Providers

The Colorado Health Care Affordability Act, Section 25.5-4-402.3, Colorado Revised Statutes, authorizes the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing to collect a hospital provider fee to increase Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid Program) and Colorado Indigent Care Program (CICP) payments to hospitals, to fund hospital quality incentive payments, to expand health care coverage in the Health First Colorado and Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) programs, and to reduce cost-shifting to private payers.
