Representative Danielson, prime sponsor, presented House Bill 17-1129 to the committee. The bill clarifies that Medicaid benefits must automatically continue without requiring an affirmative request by a client who is appealing a termination or reduction in benefits, and HCPF must send the client written confirmation of the continuing benefits. The electronic filing form for appeals must include a check box or other method to opt out of continuing benefits, to request an accommodation for submitting an appeal or participating in a hearing, or to request dispute resolution. The electronic appeals website must additionally allow for the attachment of as many documents as necessary to support the appeal.
