The RFP for Texas Medicaid dental services went out October 1, 2018, with the deadline for submissions November 30. More than five months have gone by and there is an anticipated contract start date of September 2. There has been no news about the contract or possible awardees.
So TDMR contacted Texas HHS about 10 days ago to see if anything was up.
No award yet
The answer is no. There is no decision as of yet.
We received an email from someone in the Procurement & Contracting Services department of HHS who informed us that "In regard to your request, the STAR Dental - RFP HHS0002879 has not been awarded."
Watch the Electronic State Business Daily
They suggested we "periodically visit the Electronic State Business Daily (ESBD) to obtain the award information at http://www.txsmartbuy.com/sp . The ESBD will be updated after an award has been completed."
With September 2 being little more than four months away, we will do that. You can too.
