Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid Program)

RMHP has served Medicaid-eligible persons in Western Colorado since 1974. We work closely with the State of Colorado and with local private and government organizations to provide or coordinate the delivery of publicly funded Health First Colorado benefits.

Rocky Mountain Health Plans serves Health First Colorado clients living in these counties under its RMHP Medicaid Prime plan:

  • Garfield
  • Gunnison
  • Mesa
  • Montrose
  • Pitkin
  • Rio Blanco

RMHP arranges for RMHP Prime Members to receive benefits covered by the Health First Colorado program. Providers in the RMHP network are available to Health First Colorado clients. RMHP also provides customer service, care coordination, population health management, and quality monitoring and improvement services.

RMHP doctors give special check-ups and follow-up services to children under age 21 who are covered by the Health First Colorado EPSDT program. RMHP nurses work closely with Members who are pregnant or have diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses to help them manage their health status.

Health First Colorado offers some additional services that are not covered through Rocky Mountain Health Plans. RMHP Customer Service representatives will direct you to the right places to get dental care, mental health care, and substance abuse treatment.
