Health Reform Requests for Proposals (RFPs)


Contract for Minnesota State-based Risk Adjustment Evaluation

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is requesting proposals from vendors with demonstrated expertise in employing actuarial science and developing risk adjustment models to evaluate the feasibility and potential benefit of conducting state-based risk adjustment for Minnesota’s small group and individual health insurance markets. The Minnesota legislature has directed MDH to study state-based risk adjustment, including an assessment of the suitability of the State’s all-payer claims database (APCD) for risk adjustment and developing models that are Minnesota-specific and use data from the State’s APCD. Through the data analysis, data auditing and statistical modeling, the State intends to determine whether conducting state-based risk adjustment for Minnesota’s individual and small group markets consistent with federal regulations is feasible and advisable in Minnesota.

Work is proposed to start on January 21, 2015.

A Request for Proposals will be available from this office on November 17, 2014. A copy of the Request for Proposals can be requested by contacting the Health Economics Program of the Minnesota Department of Health by telephone at 651-201-3764, or by email at:
