Joining RMHN, a Physician Hospital Organization (PHO) gives you many benefits:

RMHN will help you prepare for whatever the future holds. The keys to success in the future will be collaboration, efficiency, waste reduction and quality. And, while we can never be certain what challenges we’ll face in the future, what we do know is that health care is changing rapidly.

A member of our senior management team will walk you through the enrollment process and work directly with you during the application process. Call us at (866) 275-7646 or (406) 238-6066 or contact us online, and we will get back to you within one business day.

RMHN also partners with healthcare providers who are not RMHN members. Our non-member clients can improve their operations and reduce expenses by outsourcing one or more business management services to us. These services are available for purchase on an a la carte basis.


When you join RMHN as a full member, you are joining a group of more than 650 providers including physicians, hospitals, surgery centers, chiropractors, physical therapists, mental health professionals and others. When you become a member of RMHN, you become part of a comprehensive network.

Many benefits come with membership to Rocky Mountain Health Network, some of which are exclusive to members. Two of our member-only services are payer credentialing and third-party payer relationship development. These two services alone have helped new practices get off the ground, increased patient bases for established practices and generally helped all those in between achieve better reimbursement rates.

In addition to services included with membership, you may elect to purchase other RMHN services at a discounted member price. Some services that are included in your RMHN member benefits package include:

Credentialing: RMHN provides you with one application that we use to credential you with dozens of payers

Contracting: RMHN is a ‘messenger’ model Physician Hospital Organization.  RMHN members rely on the management of RMHN to consult and contract with third party payers, representing the overall best interest of the membership.

Contract management: RMHN manages all of the third party payer contracts on behalf of its membership

Claims disputes: RMHN is your local contact for issues arising from the processing of claims.  RMHN has direct contacts with all the payers and will work on your behalf to resolve claims issues

MD Connect Call Center: RMHN provides toll-free access to its members from providers and/or patients outside the immediate service area.

Organizational leadership opportunities: RMHN is governed by an elected Board of Directors.  Members are eligible to serve on the Board and on the many committees that exist.  A strong Board is key to the success of the organization.

Access to the Accountable Care Organization: RMHN members are able to participate in any of the “Shared Savings” plans administered by RMHN and its Accountable Health Network subsidiary.
