2.   Health Equity Incentives for Certain MassHealth Hospital, Managed Care, and Related Programs Request for Information (RFI) (BD-22-1039-EHS01-ASHWA-68794).The purpose of this RFI is to request information about health equity and social risk factor data collection and the identification, prioritization, and reduction of health and health care disparities, and related accountability. 

 

The deadline for responses on each RFI has now been extended to February 4, 2022, at 4:00 p.m.
