“’If we wouldn’t have gotten CHIPS renewed, Gateway renewed, and the community health center funding, we would have seen a significant reduction in access,’ Fruend said. ‘We would have seen significant job loss, and we would have seen site closures.’” Check out Thursday’s issue of the St. Louis American to learn more about the extension of the Gateway to Better Health program and the healthcare safety net in St. Louis.
As part of the Standard Terms and Conditions (STCs), as set forth by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare
Services (CMS), the demonstration project is required to hire an independent party to conduct an evaluation of the
program and to ensure that the necessary data is collected to research approved hypotheses and evaluation
questions. The purpose of this request for proposals is to hire an external evaluator to fulfill this role.
