NH DHHS - NH Medicaid Request for Information (RFI) to be Released July 28th

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Office of Medicaid Business and Policy (OMBP) will be issuing a Request for Information (RFI) seeking information on options or possible managed care solutions for the Medicaid population that demonstrate value and innovation. The release is scheduled for July 28, 2010.

OMBP is releasing this RFI in order to:

1. Gather input and suggestions that allow NH Medicaid to assess the feasibility of transitioning from its current Fee for Service (FFS) program and implementing more efficient and effective approaches to the delivery and financing of health care services (referred to as managed care solutions/services in the RFI) to its members;
2. Assess stakeholder interest and capacity in participating in such approaches for its current Medicaid population and/or the newly eligible population that is expected to enroll under health care reform (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) in 2014; and
3. Collect suggestions and recommendations that could be used in developing a Request for Proposal (RFP).

Anyone with interest in Medicaid Managed Care is encouraged to respond – respondents might include health care provider systems or networks, hospital systems, Managed Care Organizations, health plans, community and statewide organizations and other interested parties.

OMBP is not focusing on any one-service delivery or financing model. It is actively seeking creative approaches that maintain or improve the quality of care for its Medicaid beneficiaries while reducing or better controlling costs of the NH Medicaid program.

Copies of the RFI can be requested no sooner than July 28, 2010 by emailing NHMMC@dhhs.state.nh.us
