Specifically, the order:

  1. Confirms that employers of any size may establish HRAs that reimburse for individual health insurance premiums.
  2. Confirms that individual policies paid for by an employee who has an HRA are subject to individual health insurance regulations (not group health insurance regulations).
  3. Repeals the 2009 Colorado Department of Insurance Bulletin No. B-4.32
