OMHSAS Delays HealthChoices Contract
April 27, 2012

Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) Deputy Secretary Blaine Smith announced April 26 that the reprocurement of the Behavioral Health HealthChoices Contract for the 23-county North/Central Region has been cancelled. Bidders were notified of this decision a day earlier. As of now, OMHSAS intends to reissue a request for proposals in July or August and select a vendor for implementation July 2013. The current contractor, Community Care Behavioral Health, will continue until a vendor is selected through the reprocurement process. No reason was given other than that it is the prerogative of the department to make the decision.
