At the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS), procurement is responsible for ethically sourcing contracts that benefit the public. HFS helps millions of Illinoisans access high-quality healthcare and fulfill child support obligations to advance their physical, mental, and financial well-being. We provide healthcare coverage for children and adults through Medicaid and other medical programs, and we help ensure that children receive financial resources from both their parents through Child Support Services. 

Pursuant to 305 ILCS 5/5-30.6 all future contracts for managed care organizations for the Department of Healthcare and Family Services shall be procured in accordance with the Illinois Procurement Code.  All interested parties must register in BidBuy in order to receive notice of new contract opportunities and to submit bids. Communications surrounding any future managed care procurements are required to be confidential and are strictly limited by the Illinois Procurement Code. Interested parties are strongly encouraged to review and understand all aspects of the Illinois Procurement Code. HFS anticipates contract opportunities for managed care services for the Dual-Eligible population to be available during Spring 2024 and the remainder of the Medicaid population to be available in 2025. The current MMAI contracts expire on December 31, 2025, and the Health Choice Illinois contracts will be extended to December 31, 2026.
