MassHealth released an RFR to recruit “consumer consultants” that will assist with the review of applications from potential Integrated Care Organizations managing care for dual eligible individuals.
The demonstration project to better integrate and coordinate care for dual eligibles is still set to begin in January 2013 and the state remains on an aggressive pace to get the initiative underway. The RFR for Integrated Care Organizations (ICO’s) is due at the end of the month, and this separate RFR for “consumer consultants” is due July 20th.
These “consumers” must receive medical services, behavioral health services and/or long term services and supports (LTSS) from the state and will form a paid advisory subcommittee that shares its experiences and expertise with MassHealth and the state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services.
The RFR is available on the state procurement website Comm-PASS as Document Number 13CBEHSCONSUMERCONSULTANTRFR and at this site on the Integrating Medicare and Medicaid for Dual Eligibles website under Related Information.
For those home care agencies that have patients with positive experiences of the care and services that have been delivered to them and that may be interested, please encourage them to apply.
