Current law requires the department of health care policy and
financing (department) to offer to enter into a direct contract with the
managed care organization (MCO) operated by or under the control of the
Denver health and hospital authority (Denver health) until Denver health
ceases to operate a medicaid managed care program or until June 30,
2025. The bill removes the option for the department to enter into a direct
contract until June 30, 2025, and instead requires the department to enter
into the contract until Denver health ceases to operate a managed care
The bill prohibits the MCO from reimbursing contracted medicaid
providers at rates that are higher than the department's medicaid fee for
service rates unless the provider enters into a quality incentive agreement
with the MCO. The bill requires the MCO's contract to provide physical
and behavioral health-care services to the population it serves.
For the 2023-24 state fiscal year, the department distributed money
appropriated for a supplemental state payment to Denver health. The bill
authorizes the department to continually distribute any money
appropriated for payment to Denver health.
