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.

More homework will be coming soon.
Thanks very much for your interest in underservice and for working with us to ensure people get, the right care, to the right patient, at the right time. (Don Berwick)
