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.
All Meetings are as scheduled unless the Legislative Office Building closes. On February 20, 2013 the Public Health Committee will hold a public hearing at 11:30 AM in LOB Room 1D. The 2013 Regular Legislative Session convened January 9th and will adjourn June 5th.
