Summary:The DHA is transitioning its buying approach for professional medical (clinical) and medical support services from the current MTF-centric method to a market-based buying approach, where the requirements will be acquired across a geographical area that DHA calls a market. DHA is seeking a fuller understanding of the additional capabilities a vendor must possess beyond just health care staffing services to meet the needs of a market. DHA believes the transition to a market-based buying approach will require additional capabilities such as analyzing market demographics for the vendor to provide health care services on the next generation contract. While DHA recognizes several areas the Government needs to address (i.e., efficient security and credentialing procedures), the purpose of this RFI is focused on vendor capabilities.

DHA is currently analyzing the feedback from industry based on which the RFP will be published. Further, the DHA is not at this time seeking proposals and will not accept unsolicited proposals.

Scope:The scope of the IDIQ is to provide for professional medical, dental, and medical support services for the Department of Defense (DOD) Military/Dental Treatment Facilities (MTFs/DTFs) located within the 50 United States, the District of Columbia (DC), Puerto Rico and Guam.
Background:The Defense Health Agency (DHA) supports the delivery of clinical and medical support services within the Military Health System (MHS) by administering and managing two strategic contracts designed to supplement the staff in Department of Defense (DoD) Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs). For the most part, these two strategic contracts, which are Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ), Multiple Award Contracts (MACs), rely on vendors to provide health care staffing services at specific MTFs, which is the predominant method MTFs acquire contract health care services. The types of services acquired are listed as Q services in the Product Service Code (PSC) manual. These services include the professional medical (clinical) services such as ancillary, dental, physicians, and nurses as well as the medical support services such as appointing, auditing, clerical, coding, medical records, and transcription.
