Coverage in Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid Program)

Since 1974, RMHP has helped people in Western Colorado get access to care through the state-sponsored Health First Colorado program. Read on to learn about how RMHP serves Health First Colorado individuals and families.



Health First Colorado Benefits

We currently serve Health First Colorado clients through the Accountable Care Collaborative (ACC) and RMHP Prime. Once you are enrolled, you can access RMHP’s provider network, customer service, and care coordination support.

The Accountable Care Collaborative is Health First Colorado's primary healthcare program. Making sure Health First Colorado Members get the right care at the right time in the right place is the primary goal of the ACC.

When you are enrolled in the ACC, your medical benefits are covered by Health First Colorado. If you're enrolled in the ACC, you'll receive extra services to help coordinate your care and achieve better health.

If you live in Western Colorado or Larimer County, your care is coordinated by RMHP:

  • You’ll be connected to medical providers, as well as community and  social services.
  • We can help you get the care you need after a stay in the hospital or anursing facility.
  • We can help you choose a Primary Care Medical Provider, who will serve as your “medical home” to help you get the most out of your healthcare, including coordinating with specialists should you need one.

RMHP has a health plan called RMHP Prime that provides healthcare services to most adult Health First Colorado Members and some children with disabilities in certain counties on the Western Slope.

When you are enrolled in RMHP Prime, most of your Health First Colorado benefits are covered by RMHP. Through a community-based approach, RMHP provides medical benefits and care coordination with a focus on integration of behavioral and physical health services.

  • You'll be connected to medical providers, as well as community and social services.
  • We can help you get the care you need after a stay in the hospital or nursing facility.
  • We can help you choose a Primary Care Provider who will serve as your "medical home" to help you get the most out of your healthcare, including coordinating with specialists, should you need one.
