Request for Proposals


The Iowa Department of Health and Human Services (“Agency”) intends to contract for the delivery of high-quality dental health care services for the Iowa Dental Wellness Plan and Healthy and Well Kids in Iowa (Hawki) programs. The Agency seeks to improve the quality of care and health outcomes for Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) populations while leveraging the strength and success of current initiatives. This RFP is designed to align with Iowa Medicaid’s commitment to ensure all members have equitable access to high quality services in all areas of healthcare, including dental care. This process will build stability for Iowa Medicaid members and providers by providing covered benefits in a highly coordinated manner, integrate care and improve quality outcomes and efficiencies across the healthcare delivery system, and decrease costs through the reduction of unnecessary, inappropriate, and duplicative services. Specifically, the Agency aims to accomplish the following key goals, identified as drivers for improved dental health equity, access, and outcomes: 1. Improve Network Adequacy and availability of services. 2. Increase recall and prevention services. 3. Improve oral health equity among Medicaid members. 4. Improve coordination and continuity of care between managed care plans and enhance medical/dental integration.
