The Office of Policy and Management (OPM) has issued this RFI to assess the options available to the State in providing Fiscal Intermediary (FI) services for participants in Connecticut’s various self-directed programs, including those provided through the Medicaid State plan and Medicaid waivers and certain state programs. The RFI is intended for information gathering purposes only and the State is not obligated in any way to use the information received. The RFI process will assist the State in determining whether it will pursue a RFP with the intent to enter into a contractual agreement(s) for such services sometime in the future.
This initiative is designed to assist up to ten (10) agencies in supporting and maximizing the contributions of Recovery Support Specialists (RSS), Recovery Coaches (RC) and Peer Support staff in promoting the recovery of persons with serious mental illnesses and/or substance use disorders. The training and technical assistance will be provided at no cost to the selected agencies by Yale Program for Recovery and Community Health (PRCH), CT Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR) and Advocacy Unlimited (AU) and the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS).
