A proposal in the Colorado Legislature would ban hospital "facility fees" if the care is provided to the patient via telehealth or in a clinic owned by the hospital but not on its main campus, reports Becker’s Hospital Review. The bill would also ban facility fees for procedures that could be performed safely in a location other than a hospital. If the bill is passed, the Colorado attorney general's office could investigate a hospital violating the law for "deceptive trade practices."
