The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is seeking requests for proposals to hire the organization that will help manage the Children and Families Specialty Plan (CFSP), a first-of-its-kind statewide health plan designed to ensure access to comprehensive physical and behavioral health services for Medicaid-enrolled children, youth and families served by the child welfare system.

“The Children and Families Specialty Plan is an innovative approach to improving behavioral health services for children in North Carolina,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Kody H. Kinsley. “By ensuring services are better coordinated and more consistently delivered across the state, the plan will help us ensure children and families have the right care at the right time to meet their needs.”

Organizations that are interested and eligible to submit a proposal to help manage the CFSP are encouraged to apply. The Children and Families Specialty Plan RFP is posted on the North Carolina electronic Vendor Portal.
