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,
