Colorado county wants to change insurance zones

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Officials in one Colorado county are considering a lawsuit over their zoning for health insurance under the new federal health care law.

Garfield County commissioners want to challenge a decision by state insurance officials to put them in the "Resort" zone. That puts Glenwood Springs with Aspen and Vail.

The Colorado Insurance Commission established 11 rating areas in the state. The areas have different health insurance premiums.

Garfield County commissioners tell the Post Independent that constituents are asking them to request Garfield County's removal from the more expensive zone. They say the Glenwood Springs area is more properly grouped with Mesa County to the west.

A spokesman for the state Division of Insurance said Tuesday that insurance zoning is under discussion.
