At Missoula County Benefits, we are in network with many preferred providers.  The following is a current list, as of 12/22/20 of preferred providers and preferred provider organizations.  We do our best to update this list on a regular basis; however, we recommend our members contact our office directly to verify eligibility and coverage, as this list does not guarantee coverage or payment due to the volatility of our provider network.
