OPEN NOW - Request for Information UHAA 2024000024
DEADLINE: October 31, 2023, 3 PM MT
This is an open opportunity for technology vendors providing social determinants of health (SDoH) services in Colorado to share information about their available products and services to organizations who may be delivering or referring clients to SDoH supports. Information from this RFI will be added to OeHI’s SDoH Vendor Guide, a publicly available resource aimed at promoting transparency and helping potential clients view services in one place.
Examples of eligible vendor services include but are not limited to: Connection to Statewide Health/Social Information Networks, Outcome Tracking, Screening Tools, Social Needs Scores, Technical Support, Closed-loop Referrals, and SDoH Data Sets. Community-based organizations do not need to submit a response.
If your organization previously submitted information for the SDoH Vendor Guide, you do not need to fill out this form again. If you would like to update the information that was previously submitted and currently displayed in the Guide, please email your requested changes to email@example.com.
Please note that this posting is not a traditional RFI, formally defined and managed within the VSS system. This posting is not in connection with the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) or the State of Colorado Price Agreement List (NASPO) but rather is meant to be a publicly available resource for informational purposes only. This posting will be open semi-annually. This form is not in any way related to the Invitation to Negotiate for the Social Health Information Exchange or any other active procurements by the State of Colorado.
Colorado Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) Vendor Guide
The SDoH Vendor Guide is a noncomprehensive list of SDoH services and tools available in Colorado. This guide was compiled by OeHI. SDoH service organizations provided the information below via an open Request for Information.
This guide is meant to be a helpful resource and is not an official endorsement of vendors, products, or services by OeHI or the State of Colorado. This guide was last updated in May 2023 and will be updated periodically.

Affordable Connectivity Program
New long-term benefit will help to lower the cost of broadband service for eligible households
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is working to help build awareness about the Affordable Connectivity Program, a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program. The new long-term benefit will help to lower the cost of broadband service for eligible households struggling to afford internet service.
The Affordable Connectivity Program provides:
- Up to $30/month discount for broadband service;
- Up to $75/month discount for households on qualifying Tribal lands; and
- A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet purchased through a participating provider if the household contributes more than $10 but less than $50 toward the purchase price.
The Affordable Connectivity Program is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.
Who is Eligible?
A household is eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program if the household income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, or if a member of the household meets at least one of the criteria outlined at https://www.fcc.gov/acp.
Two-Steps to Enroll
- Go to ACPBenefit.org to submit an application or print out a mail-in application; and
- Contact your preferred participating provider to select a plan and have the discount applied to your bill.
Some providers may have an alternative application that they will ask you to complete.
Eligible households must both apply for the program and contact a participating provider to select a service plan.
