HCA identifies apparently successful bidders for proposed 2021 Integrated Managed Care – Expanded Access
Health Care Authority (HCA) plans to expand access to Apple Health (Medicaid) integrated managed care plans in three regions across the state beginning January 2021. After completion of the Request for Proposal (RFP) process, the apparently successful bidders (ASBs) for expansion include:
- Community Health Plan of Washington (CHPW) – North Central and Pierce regions
- Coordinated Care of Washington (CCW) – Southwest region
All decisions are contingent upon completion of readiness review of the managed care plans and final contract signing.
Apple Health integrated managed care has been available statewide since January 2020. Under Apple Health integrated managed care, services are coordinated through a single health plan so individuals receive the help they need for body and mind, including mental health and substance use disorder treatment. This is part of HCA's ongoing efforts to transform the way we purchase health care to ensure high-quality care at the best price.
