Lincoln– The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has formed the Medical Care Advisory Committee (MCAC) which is made up of a group of Medicaid beneficiaries, advocates, and providers who will work together to make recommendations to the program Medicaid.
At the first meeting, Dr. Jessica Meeske, DDS, was elected chair and Karma Boll was elected vice-chair. They will work with Medicaid and Long-Term Care (MLTC) Director Kevin Bagley to set the agenda, location and time for future meetings. These meetings are open to the public.
The MCAC of Nebraska seeks candidates to serve on the committee, especially those who are Medicaid members or advocates. MCAC expects a diverse mix of perspectives from diverse backgrounds. Once the committee is complete, nine members will represent beneficiaries and advocates and eight members will represent providers.
MCAC members are invited to name particular areas of interest for study and make recommendations. MLTC staff will prepare presentations on these topics and answer questions from committee members.
