State Board of Health Amends Rules Regarding the Naming of Health Care Entities

The Colorado State Board of Health has amended the rules that outline the criteria regarding licensed health care entity names. The requirement that an entity’s name identify the services for which it is licensed has been eliminated. The license fee has also been lowered for processing an entity’s request to change its name or address. “These changes have been discussed with a consortium of licensed health care entities, which supports the proposal.”

The fee to change the name or address of a health care entity has been lowered from $360 to $75.

The purpose of the proposed amendments is to better reflect the changing face of health care and the anticipated expansion of health care delivery systems under the Affordable Care Act.

A hearing on the amended rules will be held on Wednesday, August 17, 2011 at the Department of Public Health and Environment, Building A, Sabin-Cleere Conference Room, 4300 Cherry Creek Drive South, Denver, Colorado 80246, beginning at 10:00 am.

The Board encourages all interested persons to participate in the hearing by providing written data, views, or comments, or by making oral comments at the hearing.

The Board requests submission of written materials no later than August 3, 2011 to allow the Board sufficient time to review the comments prior to the meeting. Persons wishing to submit written comments or views should submit them following the guidelines provided here.
