HCA Releases RFP for Medicaid Managed Care Dental: Informational Provider Webinar May 11

May 9, 2018

Substitute Senate Bill 5883 requires the Health Care Authority (HCA) to contract with licensed dental health plans or managed health care plans to provide managed care dental services by January 1, 2019. The purpose of the legislation is to allow for greater access and oral health outcomes for Washington Apple Health (Medicaid) enrollees. HCA started the procurement process with the recent release of the Request for Proposal (request number 2516), which can be found on HCA’s bids and contracts web page. More information and timeline for HCA’s implementation of dental managed care can be found here. WSHA will be monitoring the process to ensure providers of dental services, such as rural health clinics are included in the managed care networks.

HCA is providing an overview of the new program via a webinar for dental providers on Friday, May 11 from 12-1:30 p.m. Interested providers can register for the webinar here. (Andrew Busz, andrewb@wsha.org)
