This brief highlights findings from an in-depth, Colorado-specific study that assessed the effect of health care reform on the Colorado economy. The study, which began prior to the passage of federal health care reform, was based on the recommendations of Colorado’s 208 Commission. Conducted by the New America Foundation, a nonpartisan research organization, and validated by The University of Denver’s Center for Colorado’s Economic Future, the study was commissioned and supported by The Colorado Trust and the Colorado Health Foundation. This companion issue brief summarizes the full study and updates selected findings to reflect the specifics of the Affordable Care Act.
