Request for Proposals

The Department plans to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) in late 2018 for reprocurement of the NEMT Broker contract. The contract will be effective July 1, 2019.

RFP feedback has been obtained through the Transportation Benefits Collaborative process. The Benefits Collaborative process indicated a need for a Request for Information (RFI) which was released on July 2, 2018.  The RFI is available on the Colorado Vendor Self Service (VSS) website: www.colorado.gov/vss.  

Information will be posted here as it becomes available. You can send an email with questions to HCPF_NEMT_RFP@hcpf.co.gov.
