Oklahoma Issues ABD Care Coordination RFI

This week, our In Focus section reviews the request for information (RFI) issued by the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA), soliciting input on a care coordination model, or combination of models, to serve the SoonerCare (Medicaid) aged, blind, and disabled (ABD) population. In early May, Governor Mary Fallin signed into law HB 1566, which directs OHCA to issue a request for proposals (RFP) for ABD care coordination in 2016. Oklahoma does not currently operate a fully capitated managed care program, although more than 100,000 Medicaid adults are enrollment in SoonerCare Choice, the state’s primary care case management (PCCM) program. This RFI seeks input from interested care coordination vendors on an array of potential care coordination models for the more than 137,000 ABD SoonerCare members.
