Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program)/CHP+ is Colorado’s state-sponsored health insurance plan. RMHP is the regional organization for Health First Colorado Members who live in Western Colorado and Larimer County and helps these members receive low-cost, high-quality health care. RMHP Prime provides healthcare services to adult members of Health First Colorado and some children with disabilities in certain counties on the Western Slope.

RMHP members who move outside of Colorado may be able to keep their benefits, depending on the requirements and service area of their RMHP plan.
