Contract for services to a Connecticut nonprofit or for-profit organization in eligible locations to oversee health-related services. Funding is intended to support the administration of daily functions; to ensure administrative efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and accountability for all program requirements; and to collect, analyze, report on the use of program data for continuous quality improvement, value-based care, and recommendations for improvements. Eligible applicants are located within a 20-mile radius of downtown Hartford.
The goal of the program is to contract with a qualified agency to serve as Administrative Services Organization (ASO) for the state's HUSKY Health Program, including both Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The Department is interested in innovative, forward-thinking, and dynamic proposals that manifest commitment and capacity around primary and preventive care, care delivery and payment reforms, and technology-driven solutions. The contracted ASO shall ensure high quality and timely access to community-based health services that are culturally and linguistically compatible with the members in Connecticut.
Contracted services should be coordinated with behavioral health services, and fulfill goals around the quadruple aim: improving population health outcomes, providing and administering value-based services to control costs, improving member experience, and improving provider experience. These goals should be viewed through a population health and health equity framework, which shares the recognition that unmet health-related social needs, such as food and/or housing insecurity, may increase the risk of developing chronic conditions and reduce an individual’s ability to manage those conditions.
Specific focus areas include administrative efficiency, social determinants of health, health equity, primary, preventive, and person-centered care. To fulfill these priorities, the Department expects the contracted entity to ensure recruitment and maintenance of a robust provider network; facilitate access to and appropriate utilization of high quality, covered health services; provide effective member and provider support, outreach, and education; provide intensive care management for members with complex needs; deliver a robust reporting portfolio based on sophisticated data analytic systems and leadership, implement health equity-informed, system and community-driven approaches for eliminating health disparities and collaborate effectively in support of integration of services with the Department’s behavioral health and dental ASOs.
