7 New Step in Planning Process Follow-up contact between LMHA and provider required Initiated by LMHA using DSHS website LMHA specifies teleconference or visit LMHA provides scheduling flexibility Provider has 45 days to participate

8 New Provision The LMHA may conclude that a provider is not interested in contracting with the LMHA if the provider does not participate in a teleconference or in-person meeting (whichever is requested by LMHA) within 45 days. LMHA must assume provider is interested if LMHA does not initiate contact

9 Significance An LMHA is not obligated to go through procurement if no providers have demonstrated interest in contracting with the LMHA DSHS may contact providers to confirm LMHA conclusions regarding provider interest
