RFI for Specialized Mental Health Rehabilitation Act of 2013 Comparable Programs.

October 29, 2013

Notice to Providers:

DHS/DMH would like to make you aware of a recent Request for Information that has been posted to DHS/DMH website. This RFI is in response to PA -0104/SB 002609, Specialized Mental Health Rehabilitation Act of 2013. This Act provides for licensure of long term care facilities that were federally designated as IMDs on the effective date of the Act. These 24 facilities are now governed by this Act instead of the Nursing Home Care Act.

Section 6-104.3 of this Act requires DMH to oversee the creation of comparable programs to be provided by community-based providers. This RFI seeks proposals from DHS/DMH contracted community providers, in the geographic areas of the SMHRFs, for the comparable programs outlined in the RFI.

The RFI can be found at: https://www.dhs.state.il.us/page.aspx?item=67788

The due date for proposals is Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at 12:00pm.

All questions regarding this RFI should be directed to DHS/DMH at email dhs.mh@illinois.gov.

Thank you,
