Health Care Forum Questionaire

CoPIRG Foundation
Last updated: 2/16/2012

Between September and November of 2011, 656 Coloradans participated in forums designed to raise the voice of Coloradans around the design and implementation of the Colorado Health Benefit Exchange.   Forums were held in 27 places acorss Colorado from Lamar to Durango, from the San Luis Valley to Grand Junction and from Pueblo to Greeley.  The Colorado Public Interest Research Group (CoPIRG), Colorado Consumer Health Initiative (CCHI) and the Colorado Center on Law and Policy (CCLP) coordinated the statewide effort along with local sponsors at many of the forums.

“The Colorado Health Benefit Exchange’s mission is to increase affordability, access and choice for Colorado individuals and small businesses around health insurance,” said the Director of CoPIRG, Danny Katz.  “This will make a real impact in hundreds of thousands of Coloradans lives but we know it won’t work unless it works for Coloradans.  So we organized forums to get feedback about how the Exchange would need to be set up.” 

Each forum lasted between 45 minutes to an hour.  Attendees received a brief overview of the current status of the Colorado Health Benefit Exchange but spent the majority of the forum filling out a nine-page questionnaire designed to understand how the Exchange could best work for them. This information was then compiled into a report and will be presented to the Exchange Board in March of 2012.
