Geographic Service Areas for Managed Care Network Adequacy

In accordance with 37.108.219 ARM, a health carrier offering a managed care plan in Montana must have an adequate network of primary care providers, a hospital or critical access hospital, and a pharmacy that is located within a 30-mile radius of each enrollee's residence or place of work, with some exceptions.

There are currently 54 Geographic Service Areas in Montana where it is possible to have all three provider types. These are represented in yellow. The placement of the yellow circle is approximate.

To determine whether a community is within a 30-mile radius of one of the 54 Montana Geographic Service Areas, please contact Kathy Lubke at (406) 444-9519 or klubke@mt.gov for a web page link for calculating distance.
