ColoradoCare was a citizens' initiative to amend the Constitution of Colorado to provide a system of universal health care. It was on the ballot in Colorado on November 8, 2016 as Colorado State Health Care System Initiative, Amendment 69.[1]

Like all ballot initiatives in Colorado, 100,000 signatures were required to put the proposal on the ballot. ColoradoCare would be financed by a payroll and income tax of 10% (premiums of 3.33% for employees and 6.67% for employers). It would begin operating in 2019 and is estimated to require revenue of $38 billion annually (from the Federal government and payroll taxes) and provide coverage for all residents, with no deductibles.[2]
