Solicitation Description: STAR+PLUS managed care services for people who are Medicaid eligible and age 65 or older, blind, or disabled. STAR+PLUS is a Texas Medicaid Managed Care program integrating the delivery of Acute Care services and Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) for people who are age 65 or older, blind, or disabled. The STAR+PLUS Program operates under § 1115 of the Social Security Act as part of a demonstration project and § 1915 of the Social Security Act as part of the Texas § 1915 (c) waivers to expand the Medicaid managed care delivery system statewide and provide home and community-based services under a Medicaid managed care model. STAR+PLUS began as a Medicaid pilot project in Harris County and has since expanded to be statewide. As of November 2016, STAR+PLUS MCOs (contracted MCOs participating in the STAR+PLUS program) served 529,966 Members statewide. Through this procurement, HHSC intends to continue to build on the Texas health care reforms accomplished through the STAR+PLUS Medicaid managed care program. This statewide procurement includes the Bexar, Central Texas, Dallas, El Paso, Harris, Hidalgo, Jefferson, Lubbock, Northeast Texas, Nueces, Tarrant, Travis, and West Texas SAs. HHSC intends to award contracts to at least two MCOs for each SA to provide Covered Services required of this RFP to STAR+PLUS eligible Members in these SAs. See Section 2.5.5. HHSC reserves the right to place limits on the number of MCOs in a SA.
