About the Council
The Council on Medical Assistance Program was established under CGS 17b-28 as a collaborative body consisting of legislators, Medicaid consumers, advocates, health care providers, insurers and state agencies to advise DSS on the development of Connecticut's Medicaid Managed Care program and for legislative and public input to monitor the implementation of the program.
Due to the large volume of work the Council addresses, committees have been established – Complex Care, Consumer Access, Quality Improvement, Women's Health, and Care Management.
The full Council and each committee meet once a month. The Council holds public hearings, issues surveys and holds provider forums to assess the impact of Medicaid Managed Care.
Please join us on Friday, October 4, 9:30AM at the Legislative Office Building Room 1E to learn about the NEW STATE-FEDERAL INITIATIVE TO SERVE PEOPLE DUALLY ELIGIBLE FOR MEDICARE AND MEDICAID Kate McEvoy, Interim Director of Medicaid Services for Connecticut will present an overview of the Dually Eligible initiative. This presentation is targeted to physicians, hospitals, home health providers, behavioral health agencies, federally qualified health centers, nursing homes, and other health care providers who are part of the "Health Neighborhoods" in which they practice. Your feedback about how this initiative can be successful in improving health outcomes and controlling spending on health care is crucial to its success. Your questions and suggestions will also inform how educational presentations should be made throughout the state to healthcare provider communities. The state will be issuing a Request for Proposals for groups of providers who may wish to participate in this initiative. The state will be offering payments for administrative costs, for care management, and providers will share in a portion of any savings generated in the initiative from Medicare and Medicaid.
