With the firm’s managed care expertise on hand, this entity aimed to deliver a response that met the RFP’s requirements and showcased its experience with LTSS.

  • Strategizing on how to convey understanding of the latest practices in person- centered planning, disease management, and social determinants of health
  • Developing ways to highlight the strength of the client’s mission and experience

The Results

With the help of Sellers Dorsey, the client submitted a strong and timely response to the RFP that successfully won its bid. Additionally, Sellers Dorsey continued to assist the client in Medicaid managed care markets in other states, with a focus on integrated programs.
