Medicaid Provider Rate Review Advisory Committee

The Medicaid Provider Rate Review Advisory Committee (MPRRAC) was enacted in June of 2015 (Senate Bill 15-228) and operates in accordance with the Colorado Medical Assistance Act, Section 25.5-4-401, C.R.S. (Colorado Revised Statutes).

  • Reviewing the report the Department submits each May 1
  • Taking public comment from stakeholders on whether rates should be reviewed out of cycle
