Florida Releases Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) Procurement

This week, our In Focus section reviews the Invitations to Negotiate (ITNs) issued on July 14, 2017, by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) to re-procure its managed care vendors. The ITNs will involve separate and simultaneous regional procurements for managed care plans. Currently, approximately 4 million state residents are eligible for Medicaid—the fourth largest Medicaid population in the nation. Of those, around 3.2 million receive services through managed care plans. Medicaid-covered populations include older adults, individuals with disabilities, families, pregnant women, and children living below the poverty line. Estimated state fiscal year (SFY) 2017-18 spending for Medicaid managed care is estimated at $18.4 billion.
