Rocky Mountain Health Plans earns communicators awards

Rocky Mountain Health Plans has earned two awards for educational and community relations campaigns.

The Grand Junction-based health care benefits provider  received the awards at the Colorado Healthcare Communicators awards dinner in Denver. A panel of marketing and public relations experts selected the winners.
