Medicaid Managed Care Contract Language: Health Disparities and Health Equity

Bailit Health

This document provides excerpts of health disparities and health equity language from Medicaid managed care (MMC) contracts and requests for proposals (RFPs) from 17 states and the District of Columbia. The criteria for inclusion in this compendium are contracts and RFPs that explicitly address health disparities and/or health equity. Website links to the full contracts are included where available.

The latest update to this publication adds language from California’s final Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans Request for Proposals (RFP) which the state issued in February 2022. This is the sixth update to this State Health and Value Strategies resource since its original publication in June 2020. See the companion expert perspective California’s Department of Health Care Services Centers Health Equity in its Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Procurement for an analysis of the Medi-Cal RFP.
