Pennsylvania Issues Draft MLTSS RFP

This week, our In Focus section reviews the draft request for proposals (RFP) for the Pennsylvania Community HealthChoices (CHC) program, which will coordinate physical health services and long term services and supports (LTSS) under a new statewide managed care program. The state is requesting comments on the draft RFP, program requirements, and forthcoming eligibility and enrollment documents through the beginning of next year, in anticipation of a final RFP release in January 2016. The CHC program, scheduled to implement over three years beginning in 2017, will serve an estimated 450,000 individuals, including 130,000 with LTSS needs.
