Medicaid Together Central Point of Intake (Amended 4/28/20)
Vendor selection for upcoming citywide initiative to eliminate asthma allergens in children’s homes
The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNY), on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), is accepting proposals for entities to become the Central Point of Intake (CPI) for Medicaid Together Improving Asthma Program, an initiative that brings together multi-sector partners to eliminate cockroaches and mice in the homes of children with asthma hospitalizations and confirmed allergy to these pests.
One vendor (the CPI) will be selected to enroll participants in the program and rapidly deploy Integrated Pest Management with Allergen Reduction (IPM-AR) to their homes across the five boroughs, on behalf of Managed Care Organizations participating in Medicaid Together.
For purposes of this project the CPI should be able to rapidly:
- Become a vendor to all participating Managed Care Organizations (MCOs).
- Confirm eligibility and enroll children referred from different hospitals.
- Hire and oversee the deployment of high quality IPM-AR to homes.
- Provide reports and monitoring of services delivered
Entities such as Health Homes, community-based organizations engaged in contracts with MCOs, entities overseeing integrated pest management contracts, management services organizations, independent practice associations, and similar entities are encouraged to review the RFP for potential eligibility.
FPHNY will select and designate a sole CPI. The CPI will derive revenue from program-related contracts it will enter into with participating Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) for a 3-year period (tentatively Fall 2020- Fall 2023). This revenue may range from $0 to $1,200,000 over the duration of the project, based on number of MCOs that the CPI contracts with and number of eligible participants to which the service is deployed. We anticipate that 5-7 MCOs will participate in this initiative.
Funding for this CPI will be provided by participating MCOs, backed by generous funding from Enterprise Community Partners.
