CO Rev Stat ยง 13-64-402 (2016) What's This?

(1) In any action in a court or arbitration proceeding for personal injury against a health care provider for professional negligence, the plaintiff shall, within sixty days after the commencement thereof, serve written notice thereof to the third party payor or provider of any amount paid or payable as a medical benefit pursuant to any health, sickness, or accident insurance or plan, which provides health benefits, or any contract or agreement of any group, organization, partnership, or corporation to provide, pay for, or reimburse the cost of medical, hospital, dental, or other health care services, and shall file a copy thereof with the court or arbitrator. Such service shall be made pursuant to section 10-3-107 (1) or (1.5), C.R.S., or pursuant to the Colorado rules of civil procedure.

(2) If such third party payor or provider of such benefits has a right of subrogation for such payments, it shall file with the court or arbitrator written notice of such subrogated claim, without specifying a definite amount, within ninety days after receipt of the notice required in subsection (1) of this section, and transmit a copy thereof to the party plaintiff. Failure to file such written notice shall constitute a waiver of such right of subrogation as to such action.

(3) Before entering final judgment, the court shall determine the amount, if any, due the third party payor or provider and enter its judgment in accordance with such finding.

(4) The provisions of this section shall not apply to section 25.5-4-301, C.R.S.
