Physician practices have rights under Colorado law that can be exercised to reduce health plan barriers to care. Those legal protections include but are not limited to: physician profiling, prior authorization and referrals, telehealth, anti-retaliation, narrow networks, timely payment, contracting, and appeals.
To help physicians and practice managers understand what those rights are, CMS staff has compiled countless physician protection statutes into helpful summaries and incorporated this information into a searchable members-only online database.
If you are a CMS member and would like access please:
If you are staff of a CMS member and have not previously set up a CMS.org account, you may do so by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, the name of your practice, and a list of the physicians at your practice (at least one of which is a CMS member) and we will set up an account for you.
