From our western slope outreach coordinator with the Colorado Health Benefit Exchange comes news that Colorado is the third state to ban discrimination against LGBT patients. To read more about the bulletin issued last week by the Colorado Division of Insurance, please click here.
The Colorado Civil Union Act was signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper on March 21, 2013. What an exciting time for the LGBT community and our allies in the State of Colorado! The bill will go into effect on May 1, 2013. For those seeking information on civil unions, please refer to our newly created web page, “Colorado Civil Union Act.”
