In 2019, the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) launched a series of procurements and strategic initiatives with the goal of creating a next generation managed care program focused on the individual. This focus supports us in doing better for the people we serve and the providers who are our partners.
We begin by first considering feedback and suggestions from individuals and providers when making decisions about how to evolve the Medicaid managed care program in Ohio. The feedback received through our first Request for Information (RFI #1) informed development of RFI #2, outlining our vision for the next generation of Ohio's Medicaid managed care program. The second RFI sought input from providers, associations, advocacy groups, data and information technology vendors, and managed care organizations. The response period for both RFI #1 and RFI #2 closed on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.
This feedback informed the program design reflected in Ohio Medicaid’s next generation program structure and procurement processes.
The Medicaid mailbox will remain open as a way for providers to communicate with ODM about the current Medicaid managed care program. For feedback or observations related to the Managed Care Procurement, you can also contact us through the Managed Care Procurement mailbox or by visiting the Contact Us page.
