Medical Care Advisory Committee

Federal regulations require each state Medicaid Program to establish a committee to serve in an advisory capacity on health and medical care issues.  According to 42CFR431.12 [PDF 28KB], this committee must include the following:

  • board-certified physicians and other representatives of the health professions who are familiar with the medical needs of low-income people and with the resources available for their care;
  • members of consumer groups, including Medicaid recipients;
  • agency heads from the Department of Children and Family Services and the Department of Health.

The committee may be asked to provide the Agency with advice on improving Medicaid recipients’ access to specialists, and enhancing our communication with Medicaid recipients.  Members may also be asked to review and provide input on a variety of Medicaid materials, and to make recommendations to the Agency about Medicaid policies, rules and procedures.
