The Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) has issued the Requests for Proposals (RFP) for Coordinated Care Networks (CCN).

DHH will administer CCNs for Medicaid using both models, which will be implemented simultaneously. Insurance companies, shared-savings entities and other capable groups are welcome to submit proposals to operate a CCN, and through this competitive procurement process, the state will select the best-qualified entities to provide services for the Medicaid and LaCHIP recipients who will enroll in a CCN.
