Rocky Mountain Health Plans continues Medicare coverage

Rocky Mountain Health Plans will continue to offer Medicare coverage in Colorado even as other companies discontinue Medicare private-fee-for-service (PFFS) plans.

The discontinuation of several PFFS plans at the end of the year affects 907 Medicare beneficiaries in Mesa County, 2,775 beneficiaries on the Western Slope and nearly 14,000 beneficiaries statewide. Those who are affected must enroll in new  plans to continue coverage.

Rocky Mountain Health Plans, a nonprofit organization based in Grand Junction, will continue to offer Medicare cost plans, which include Part D prescription drug coverage, in every county in Colorado except Baca County.

Enrollment is open from Nov. 15 through Jan. 31, although Medicare beneficiaries must enroll by Dec. 31 to ensure that coverage begins Jan. 1.
