Bernalillo County: Partners In Health ProgramDeadline: May 5, 2017
The Partners in Health (PIH) Program aims to promote health, prevent disease and disability, improve access to primary health care services, and provide high quality and cost efficient health care for uninsured and under-insured, also known as “medically indigent” residents of Bernalillo County.
The PIH program focuses on local community health and dental service providers to provide primary health and/or dental care to residents of Bernalillo County who would not otherwise have financial access to these services. Basic primary health care services include the first level of basic or general health care for an individual’s health needs including medical diagnosis, treatment services, and support services. These services are provided to medically indigent populations in Bernalillo County as part of either general practice, family practice, pediatrics, or general internal medicine. Primary care providers include physicians, midlevel practitioners (nurse practitioners, physician assistants), and dentists. Successful offerors will be eligible to receive compensation through the PIH Program for these services. Compensation may be on a fee for service or capitated basis.
Amount: Approximately $1,000,000 per year will be awarded to up to five offerors. Awarded funds will be divided amongst the awardees proportionally based on the number of patient encounters with indigent clients.
Eligibility: An offeror is defined as “is any person, corporation, or partnership who chooses to submit a proposal.” Offerors must demonstrate their ability to deliver quality health and/or dental care to uninsured or under-insured people.
Note: A non-mandatory pre-proposal meeting will be held on April 13, 2017.
