Public Utilities Commission Permit For Medicaid Transportation Providers

Concerning regulation of medicaid nonemergency transportation providers, and, in connection therewith, making and reducing an appropriation.
2016 Regular Session
Health Care & Health Insurance
Bill Summary

The act creates a new category of limited regulation carriers that allows providers of nonemergency transportation to medicaid clients to operate under a limited regulation permit from the public utilities commission (commission) rather than a certificate of public convenience and necessity. The commission may issue a limited regulation permit if the provider satisfies the financial responsibility requirements for permit holders, provides satisfactory proof of an agreement with the department of health care policy and financing or its agent, and provides such additional information as the commission may require. The act also establishes that a limited regulation permit is valid for one year after issuance.

The act authorizes the department of health care policy and financing to forward medicaid money to the commission to offset some of the costs of issuing permits.

The act adjusts appropriations to the department of health care policy and financing, the commission, and the Colorado bureau of investigation to implement the limited regulation permits.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
