Representative Klingenschmitt, sponsor, presented House Bill 16-1015 to the committee. Conditional upon a repeal of all or part of the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA), this bill automatically repeals the corresponding provisions in state law enacted by House Bill 13-1266 to align state health insurance laws with the requirements of the ACA. The bill maintains the existing requirements for maternity and contraception coverage, but specifies that the mandated contraception coverage only applies to contraception that does not destroy an embryo.



Representative Klingenschmitt distributed an information packet to committee members (Attachment B).
