The Commission is a member of the highly engaged Council on Medicaid Assistance Program Oversight (known as MAPOC). MAPOC 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 a variety of Medicaid related initiatives 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.
Connecticut’s Commission on Women, Children and Seniors is a member on the Executive Committee of the Complex Care Committee.
