Colorado adopts doctor rating standards, health system reforms

Share this: reports on new laws in Colorado which will enable physicians to review and contest health plan rating systems, patients to have standardized and possibly electronic health plan IDs, and insurance companies to develop new types of plans that the state may help consumers purchase.

The measure regulating physician ratings was influenced by the model developed by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo last year, disclosing how doctors are ranked and providing them a way to appeal incorrect ratings. The measure requires health plans to make transparent their systems for profiling, rating or otherwise characterizing physicians, to demonstrate its validity and accuracy of attribution.
