April 8, 2010
Each year, the Colorado Society of Association Executives (CSAE) organizes a legislative reception that provides opportunity for legislator outreach. The CDA sponsors the event, which gives us visibility among legislators and one-on-one interface to discuss our issues.
This year’s event was held on April 7. The CDA was able to talk with several legislators, including Rep. Jim Riesberg, chair of the House committee on health, and Rep. Diane Primavera, who is sponsoring HB 1234, which would require insurance companies to use U.S. licensed healthcare practitioners who have expertise in the specialty or field involved in the claim for any denials of insurance benefits. Rep. Primavera was appreciative of the CDA’s support of HB 1234.
