CHA has submitted a comment letter to the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) on its draft Request for Proposal (RFP) #20-10029, Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans, released on June 1. 

In the letter, CHA offers the following feedback, based on comments from members:   

  1. Increase oversight and network adequacy requirements of delegated entities  
  2. Ensure timely and accurate payments to providers  
  3. Strengthen and clarify the requirements that what occurs in Medi-Cal fee-for-service is the bare minimum for health plans  
  4. Increase accountability through greater specificity and more transparency  

In addition, there are several significant elements not currently available for public review. CHA has requested that DHCS solicit public feedback on these missing elements before a final RFP is released later this year, in order to ensure a more complete process.
