Contracting with Intermountain Hospitals & Facilities
Payer Contracting at Intermountain Healthcare is responsible for negotiations with insurance carriers, third party administrators and employer groups (all referred to as Contracted Payers) to access our hospital and facility network. Making our network available to other companies is part of our mission to provide health care services to communities throughout the Intermountain region.

Intermountain Has Discontinued Physician/Provider Panel Contracting
Except for SelectHealth, CHIP, and Medicaid, Intermountain Healthcare will no longer make physician/provider panels available to Contracted Payers. Many Contracted Payers are in the process of developing their own provider panels and they may be contacting you directly about participation. In the meantime, before rendering care to any Contracted Payer's members, please contact the payer to verify your participation status.
Provider Office Frequently Asked Questions
- How should I confirm my participation status with Contracted Payers?
Before seeing patients, please confirm your participating status directly with the Contracted Payer.
- How should I identify Medicaid Members that use the Intermountain Medicaid Network?
Medicaid Members that use the Intermountain Medicaid Network have the words "Select Access Network" printed on their ID Cards. The Intermountain logo does not appear on the card.
- How should I identify CHIP Members that use Intermountain Facilities and Providers?
There are two CHIP carriers in Utah, SelectHealth CHIP and Molina CHIP. SelectHealth CHIP members have contracted access to the Select Med provider panel and all Intermountain facilities. You can identify a SelectHealth CHIP member by “CHIP” being printed on the upper right hand corner of the SelectHealth member card. Molina CHIP members only have contracted access to limited Intermountain facilities and providers (Primary Children’s Medical Center, Logan Regional, Dixie Regional and Rural service areas).

The claims address is listed on the back of the Member ID Card. Please send claims to that address.
