Colorado's GOP-led Senate is moving a plan to undo Colorado's state-run insurance exchange, called Connect For Health Colorado.

Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Susan Collins (R-Me.), who met with governors, held a news conference January 23 to introduce their proposal to keep Obamacare while providing an alternative program in which states may decide to participate. "We see endless opportunity for a reform and improvement in our system of care - our systems of care". A tax on health insurers, already suspended for this year, should be repealed permanently, AHIP said.

"We know how health insurance truly works, and what doesn't work", AHIP said in a December memo outlining its views. While they have no formulated plan, they have consistently complained it is too expensive and not effective enough. Jim Smallwood, a Republican from Douglas County who sponsored the repeal. "Some websites and plans contain misleading information and may claim to offer ACA-compliant coverage when they are actually selling limited benefit plans", said Insurance Commissioner Teresa Miller, in a prepared statement. "I think the best case scenario is that they have a satisfactory replacement that they implement immediately upon the repeal of the ACA".

But Smallwood isn't having much luck selling his bill as anything but a broadside attack on Obamacare. The administration has not provided details of the order, but it could grant waivers, exemptions and delays of provisions in the health law.

Alderperson Seph Murtagh will introduce a bill at Wednesday's Common Council meeting that will officially declare the Council's opposition to the possible Congressional repeal of the Affordable Care Act without an immediate replacement. Again, the deadline is midnight Tuesday night. By late afternoon, strong demand prompted the exchange the deadline until February 3.

FirstCare, another company offering Marketplace plans in Amarillo, said they do not anticipate a major change in their enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace, according to a company spokesperson.

The state's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also referred to as SNAP, which now receives about $1 billion in federal dollars, is also at risk of losing funding if the health care law is repealed, according to Romans. Pat Toomey to make sure those plans are still available in the future.
