The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) plans to release a Request for Proposal (RFP) within the next several weeks to contract with a single dental benefits manager to administer a statewide Medicaid and LaCHIP dental program. The new program is expected to be implemented in April 2014.

DHH is requiring all bidders to collect a standard letter of intent (LOI) from prospective providers. DentaQuest plans to respond to this RFP and invites you to join our network.
