ABD RFP development delay
The Oklahoma Health
Care Authority (OHCA) will resume ABD stakeholder meetings in May as part of
the Request for Proposal (RFP) development for the ABD Care Coordination
program. The two-month delay in the timeline is due, in part, to the need for
additional time for the actuary to develop rates. The development of actuarial
rates is a critical component of the RFP development. The first deliverable
from the actuary is due in May of 2016.
Also, as OHCA staff
began to delve into the details of the RFP development, additional sections
were identified as needed. This has also increased the amount of work and time
needed for the project.
Due to the extended
timeline of the RFP development, the quiet period required by state of Oklahoma
procurement law is also extended. Therefore, the OHCA is cancelling the March
and April stakeholder meetings.
An updated timeline for
the project is available on the agency’s ABD web page, www.okhca.org/ABDCareCoordination.
