Last year, the up-and-coming local insurance company Rocky Mountain Health Plans (RMHP) made waves when it was announced that they would be expanding coverage into 12 new Colorado counties in 2021. That’s up from only 2 counties in 2020 … An impressive leap for what used to be such a small company.

The health plan many Colorado residents have been waiting for

Although Rocky Mountain Health Plans has been offering coverage to the Grand Junction area for 40 years, their plans have only recently made their way into other parts of Colorado. The result is that there are more local plans on the Marketplace than we’ve had in a while, and this is good news for Colorado residents.

Here are some of the extra benefits that have made RMHP popular amongst our clients:

  • Options for no-cost primary care visits: Pay nothing out-of-pocket when visiting your doctor
  • DoctorOnDemand: 24/7 video chat access to Board Certified doctors, therapists, pediatricians, and more.
  • RALLY: A fully integrated website and app that is built to encourage healthier, more active lifestyles. With Rally, users choose custom-picked “Missions” to accomplish, earning big rewards in a fun way.
  • Active & Fit Direct: A nationwide fitness center discount program with access to over 200 different participating fitness centers.
  • HSA-qualified plan options: Pair your RMHP health plan with a Health Savings Account to get your retirement planning kicked off early.

Rocky Mountain Health Plans’ expanded footprint

In 2021, RMHP expanded into twelve new counties, ten of which used to only have 1 plan option (Anthem). The new counties include Dolores, Garfield, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montezuma, Montrose, Ouray, Pitkin, San Juan and San Miguel, La Plata and Archuletta counties.

New in 2021: The Colorado Doctors Plan

Offered by RMHP, UnitedHealthCare, and Centura Health, the Colorado Doctors Plan is designed to facilitate a stronger connection between you and your primary care physician. The Doctors Plan includes access to leading front-range physician groups like Colorado Health Neighborhoods and New West Physicians.

At this time, the Colorado Doctors Plan is only available in the front range counties of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, El Paso and Jefferson.

Remember: If you can’t afford health insurance, you’ve still got options

Whether you can’t afford coverage or you’re simply fed-up with Obamacare, you’ve always got another option on the table.

With Health Care Cost Sharing (Healthshare) you can pay a fraction of the cost of traditional insurance, while also keeping yourself protected against the steep costs of unexpected and emergency care. Healthshare plans are not health insurance, but rather a unique, community-oriented cost sharing system.

Low-cost health sharing plans are an effective way to slash monthly costs, but they are not for everybody. Click here to read more about Health Sharing Plans with ColoHealth.
