ASAP’s Founder and CEO, Richard Betts, has been working with the Colorado Health Benefit Exchange as Vice Chairman of the Board, Chairman of the Executive Search and Personnel Committee as well as the Board Governance Committee. He was appointed by then governor Hickenlooper in July of 2011.
The goal of the exchange is to increase competition and allow small business and people in the individual insurance markets to pool their interests to obtain more competitive premiums.
Colorado is one of 10 states that have passed enabling legislation (SB200) to create the exchange. The nine-member Board is independent of any existing state agencies or department and will be a key component of national healthcare reform. The exchange is scheduled to open for business in October 2013, offering a new marketplace just for small employers. The Small Employer Health Options Program (SHOP) will provide a range of high-quality plans and susbsidies for eligible employer to reduce premium costs.
As Vice Chairman, Betts works closely with Chairman Gretchen Hammer and Executive Director Patty Fontneau in carrying out the mission of the Exchange.
