About Montana Chapter

What is the Montana Chapter of the Healthcare Financial Management Association?

The Montana Chapter of Healthcare Financial Management Association (MTHFMA) is recognized as the predominant organization to meet the educational and professional development needs of Montanans with careers in financial areas that are related to the healthcare industry. This includes, but is not limited to Administrators, Chief Financial Officers, Reimbursement Specialists, Managed Care Professionals, Patient Financial Services Professionals, Certified Public Accountants and a myriad of other professionals in related organizations.

The Chapter sponsors various educational opportunities each year. While most attendees are members of HFMA, we do have a significant number of non-members who rely on our organization for education and CPE credit. The Montana Chapter of HFMA currently has approximately 200 members.

Our Chapter offers many services to our members, as well as many ways to volunteer your services and become involved in the Chapter.
