1. The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals from qualified proposers that provide administrative and fiduciary services for the statewide Health Insurance Program (HIP) for persons living with HIV in Louisiana. The goal of HIP is to provide assistance to low-income individuals living with HIV with the payment of their health insurance premiums and eligible cost shares, including co-payments, co-insurances and deductibles. This program assists individuals by maintaining access to healthcare through their current providers while allowing the flexibility to access more options in healthcare services. It is a cost effective program in that it helps HIV infected individuals access essential medical services by utilizing their health insurance and keeps individuals from relying on the Louisiana AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP), the State funded health care system or Louisiana Medicaid. In addition, by maintaining the health insurance of individuals, it is more likely that medical care will be maintained and drug therapy accessed, which in turn will lead to improved health outcomes. People living with HIV may encounter many financial and physical hardships during the course of their disease progression. HIP was implemented to reduce the medical and financial burdens associated with the client accessing HIV-related primary to health care and medications. 2. A contract is necessary to assist with the processing of eligibility applications and the timely payment of health insurance premiums, co-payments, and deductibles for eligible HIV- infected clients residing in the State of Louisiana who are enrolled in HIP. Eligibility requirements are established by SHP and are in accordance with Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) guidelines regarding the Ryan White legislation.

1. The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals from qualified proposers to provide continued consultation in the development, maintenance and evaluation of a comprehensive service program for tenant selection, waiting list management and community based in-home supports for people with disabilities in the GO Zone. Contractor will assist DHH in the continued development and refinement of the currently existing system of tenant selection and in-home support services for households with disabilities in the Louisiana GO Zone and in the implementation and maintenance of a Medicaid based system of long term sustainable funding for the PSH supportive services currently provided by DHH through CDBG funding. 2. A contract is necessary because the PSH Program is a large, complex program using nationally recognized best practices in both housing and support services for people with disabilities. A Program like PSH has never before been attempted with a cross-disability population. Therefore, the level of expertise necessary to develop a successful program includes detailed knowledge of housing issues as well as extensive knowledge and experience with housing based supportive services. This combination necessitates familiarity with the national best practice service models and national affordable housing models, as well as the nature of the state and federal requirements interfacing a combined housing and support service program for persons with disabilities. Because current federal funding of PSH services is limited and non-recurring, DHH will need assistance with the implementation and maintenance of a Medicaid based sustainable funding mechanism for the support services and the extensive training of service providers to ensure fidelity and consistence with this best practice model. The time frame and complexity of the services will require knowledge and experience with the various Medicaid programs available nationally.
