Legislative Updates

Governor Jared Polis signed Senate Bill 24-068 into law on June 5. Rule changes go into effect on August 7, 2024.

Critical updates to the law:

  • The mandatory waiting period between oral requests is reduced from 15 to seven days or waived entirely if the patient is unlikely to survive.
  • Advanced practice registered nurses with their prescriptive authority can now serve as attending and consulting providers, further expanding the healthcare options for patients.

See below for the full act with all the changes.
