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 15 states and the District of Columbia as well as the contract for California’s state-based marketplace, Covered California. The criteria for inclusion in this compendium were contracts and RFPs that explicitly addressed health disparities and/or health equity. Website links to the full contracts are included where available.

This is the fourth revision of this publication since its original release in June 2020. This latest iteration includes new language from Medicaid programs in California, Indiana, Louisiana, and Nevada and the expert perspective States Are Leveraging Medicaid Managed Care to Further Health Equity highlights the new additions to the compendium.
