Hutches to serve on Primary Care Payment Reform Collaborative
The Colorado Division of Insurance, part of the Department of Regulatory Agencies, has selected 19 individuals from across the state to participate in the Primary Care Payment Reform Collaborative.
Trampas Hutches, CEO of Melissa Memorial Hospital in Holyoke, is representing the eastern plains on the collaborative.
House Bill 19-1233, “Investments in Primary Care to Reduce Health Care Costs,” passed in the 2019 legislative session and tasked the DOI with the formation of the collaborative.
This group will work toward evidence-based primary care strategies that reduce health care costs and incentivize value over volume. It will also provide advice to the commissioner in the development of affordability standards and targets for investments in primary care by insurance companies.
Ultimately, the collaborative will focus on developing strategies for increased investments in primary care that deliver the right care in the right place at the right time.
