215.999 Status and Disbursement of Profits


The Colorado Medical Society supports the concept that all health plans and hospitals be required to be not-for-profit and provide adequate and sensible remuneration to their administrative personnel and their capital requirements. All assets over and above the mentioned monetary requirements be actuarially returned to the patients (payers of premiums) and providers both in lower or sensible premiums and adequate and sensible provider reimbursements. Monetary consideration should always be secondary to excellent and sensible patient care.
