Concord, NH – The NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) reminds

potential bidders for Medicaid Care Management Services that the deadline

for submitting a Letter of Intent to bid is Wednesday, October 26, 2011.

“We’re looking forward to hearing from companies that want to partner with

the Department in this significant change in how the Medicaid program

operates in the state,” said DHHS Commissioner Nicholas Toumpas.

As outlined in the Request for Proposal (RFP), after submitting a Letter of

Intent, potential bidders may request clarification, additional information

or other changes to the RFP, and attend a bidders' conference. "Based on

the questions we receive, if we need to clarify any of the provisions in

the RFP, we will issue addenda, which will be posted on our website, in the

routine manner of the procurement process,” stated Toumpas.

“We have set forth a Request that offers the opportunity for innovation in

how the State can more effectively and efficiently provide services to

those who need them, in keeping with the goals of the new State law, SB

147," said Toumpas. The new law, passed by the Legislature and signed into

law by Governor John Lynch, seeks to bring value, quality, efficiency,

innovation and cost savings to the Medicaid program.
