Representative Mullica, bill co-sponsor, introduced House Bill 21-1005. The bill creates the Health Care Services Reserve Corps Task Force in the Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to evaluate and make recommendations regarding the creation of a Colorado Health Care Services Reserve Corps program. The purpose of the program is to cross-train medical professionals to serve during emergencies and disasters. The task force will include representatives from certain state agencies and governor-appointed representatives of health professions, the public health field, and related fields. The task force will also explore offering student loan debt relief as a benefit for program participants. Task force members serve without compensation, beginning in the fall of 2021, and the task force’s first progress report to the legislature is due in January 2023.
