California Medicaid RFP

The California Department of Health Care Services solicited public comments on its draft request for proposal (RFP) for upcoming procurement of Medi-Cal (Medicaid) managed care plans. This is the first time California has conducted a statewide procurement, and it will cover 11 million Medi-Cal enrollees. The California Health Care Foundation publicized the opportunity for stakeholders to weigh in on ideas to improve access, equity and quality of care. Re-bidding state Medicaid managed care contracts is an important opportunity for primary care advocates to promote effective contracting practices (including reporting primary care spending), oversight and accountability processes, and appropriate alignment with other state payers and purchasers to advance comprehensive primary care.
