HHSC announces meetings prior to the STAR CHIP application

September 13, 2021

In anticipation of the next application and the resulting contract for STAR CHIP, the Commission on Human and Health Services (HHSC) invites the managed care organizations that would be eligible to receive the STAR CHIP contract award (potential respondents ) to participate in a pre-application meeting with Medicaid staff, legal and contracting staff.

Meetings are limited to 30 minutes and will allow potential respondents the opportunity to:

  • Enter the capabilities of your business and the benefits of providing services.
  • Provide opinions and recommendations on the HHSC acquisition process.
  • Provide input and recommendations on future contracts.

The agenda of the meeting is strictly limited to these issues and there will be limited interaction between program staff and supplier representatives in accordance with HHSC’s Supplier Interaction Policy (PDF).

Meetings will be scheduled from September 27 to October 7, 2021 and will be held virtually using Microsoft Teams or an equivalent virtual method. After October 7, HHSC will stop discussing the hiring of STAR CHIP with potential respondents.
