Nebraska Issues Medicaid Managed Care Request for Proposals (RFP)

This week, our In Focus section reviews the request for proposal (RFP) issued by the State of Nebraska on October 21, 2015, for the statewide rebid of their Medicaid managed care programs, integrating physical and behavioral health for nearly all Medicaid beneficiaries. The integrated statewide program, to be known as Heritage Health, will cover around 240,000 members with more than $1 billion in annual Medicaid spending when fully implemented. A long-planned separate RFP for managed long-term supports and services (MLTSS) is still expected to be released in the coming year, as MLTSS services are not included in this RFP.
