RMOPC's advocacy efforts in 2023 resulted in the introduction of House Bill 1136, centered around our "So Coloradans Can Move" initiative. This focused on securing insurance coverage for secondary prostheses dedicated to recreational activities. On May 25, 2023, HB23-1136 was signed into law, marking a monumental victory for Colorado's limb loss/difference community. This legislation stands as a testament to RMOPC's unwavering dedication to equal rights. Acknowledging that movement is medicine, a right that all Coloradans deserve.
