Background on RFI #1
In early 2019, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine called on the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) to ensure Ohioans get the best value in providing quality care. To inform the process, we launched our first Request for Information (RFI) to collect feedback and suggestions from individuals who receive services through managed care, providers, advocacy groups, and community-based organizations.
“Our mission in this process is to focus on the individual rather than on the business of managed care,” said Governor DeWine. “The request for feedback released today seeks information specifically from individuals receiving Medicaid services, providers and advocates. Their voices are vital to a just and fair managed care program.”
ODM received nearly 1,000 responses during the RFI #1 response period, which closed on March 3, 2020. Visit the What We’ve Heard From the Individuals We Serve and What We’ve Heard From Providers pages for additional details on the themes of these responses.
Throughout future phases of the procurement process, the Managed Care Procurement mailbox remains open as a way for providers, advocates and individuals to communicate with ODM about the Managed Care program.
