State Government of Mississippi Health Services RFP

This year, COVID-19 has transformed how we view health and revealed inconsistencies in our medical system that prevent us from safely delivering care. If you want to be part of the solution, Mississippi’s State and School Employees Health Insurance Management Board is issuing a request for proposals (RFP) for a firm to provide comprehensive health and wellness management services. For example, requirements for this health services RFP include incentive management and wellness promotion management. The firm can also provide optional services such as disease management, maternity management, weight management, and a tobacco cessation program.

More specifically, the firm will assign an account manager to the project and meet with the Board on a monthly basis to review services. The selected offeror of this health services RFP will respond to inquiries from participants, providers, and the Board through a dedicated telephone line. Lastly, it will actively participate in Board activities and respond in a timely manner to inquiries or complaints. The contract will encompass four (4) years with an optional renewal of up to one (1) year.
