CHCF Issues Report on Medi-Cal Managed Care Plan Procurement

The California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) earlier this month released a brief entitled, “Understand the Basics of Medi-Cal Managed Care Procurement,” detailing the basics of the state’s upcoming procurement process, the scope and goals of the 2021 procurement process, the timeline and specifics of each step of the procurement process, and opportunities for public stakeholders to provide input.

The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has begun its process of re-contracting with all commercial managed care plans statewide to serve Medi-Cal beneficiaries. DHCS has issued a draft request for proposal (RFP) document associated with the procurement, and interested parties have until July 1, 2021, to provide input on the documents.
