The Colorado legislators approved the formation of a new commission to study and make recommendations on ways to better contain the growing costs of health care. I applaud our political leaders to act in non-partisan ways in this regard. The commission will be represented by a breadth of interest groups and members of Republican and Democratic parties.
The commission will run for 3 years and make policy recommendations to the State legislature. Comments from the article suggest that Colorado is pretty unique in having an environment where diverse groups on health care have worked successfully together. We wish them success!
