Changes at Rocky

Rocky Mountain Health Plans will continue to operate as the independent Rocky we know, but now with the financial stability that comes from partnering with one of the largest companies in the world.

That’s terrific news. By all indications, UnitedHealthcare acquired RMHP not to dismantle it and absorb its customers and employees, but to learn from what Rocky does very well — innovate and build strong relationships with physicians, hospitals and healthcare partners.

Founded in 1974 as an independent, not-for-profit health insurance provider, RMHP’s mission was always putting people before profits. UnitedHealthcare is a for-profit company, but its mission statement squares remarkably with that of Rocky’s.
