Health Insurance & Affordable Care Act

It’s Hot Springs Vs. Ski Slopes In Colorado Insurance Battle

By Eric Whitney

Thu, Feb 13 2014

The county with the highest health insurance premiums in the country is drafting a lawsuit against Colorado, saying the state’s approval of the rates violates anti-discrimination protections in the Affordable Care Act.

Garfield County Attorney Frank Hutfless says county commissioners told him “to prepare a lawsuit to be filed against the state, and particularly the department of insurance, the insurance commissioner and perhaps the governor.”

At issue is the decision by Colorado Insurance Commissioner Marguerite Salazar to include Garfield county in the state’s “resort” insurance rating area, which a Kaiser Health News report found to have the highest premiums in the U.S. The lowest-price silver plan in the rating area for a 40-year-old male is $483 a month, versus $245 a month in Denver.
