Department of Human Services Announces Series of Public Meetings for Medicaid Modernization: As announced last week, the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for Governor Branstad’s Medicaid Modernization. This initiative aims to improve the coordination and quality of care while providing predictability and sustainability for taxpayers in Medicaid spending.
The RFP, titled the Iowa High Quality Health Care Initiative, asks for bids from potential vendors as the state moves toward a risk-based managed care approach for Iowa’s Medicaid program. The RFP can be found here: http://bidopportunities.iowa.gov/?pgname=viewrfp&rfp_id=11140.
