To assist county plans with their credentialing responsibilities as managed care plans, CalMHSA has launched a Request for Proposal (RFP) to select a contractor for credentialing/recredentialing services. We anticipate selecting a vendor by early June and intend to launch this service on behalf of interested counties later this year.

  • Qualifying vendors responding to the RFP must be credentialing verification organizations and certified by the National Committee on Quality Assurance.
  • The initiative will be available to county Mental Health Plans, Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery Systems and Drug Medi-Cal State Plans.
  • Pricing is yet to be determined.
