The Minnesota Department of Human Services is looking for up to 10 people to serve on the Medicaid Citizens' Advisory Committee, which helps ensure that high-quality health and medical services are provided to low-income persons.

The Minnesota Department of Human Services is looking for up to 10 people to serve on the Medicaid Citizens' Advisory Committee, which helps ensure that high-quality health and medical services are provided to low-income persons.

This committee, representing Medicaid clients, advises DHS and helps define what the Medicaid Program should be in relationship to future health care and technological needs. Specifically, the committee explores designated problem areas; evaluates department programs; makes specific recommendations and resolutions; and contributes to the formulations of department policy and standards.

New members will be appointed for the years 2016-2017. Committee meetings are typically held quarterly at the Department of Human Services, 540 Cedar St., St. Paul, Minn.

Medicaid clients will be given preference, but also urge members of consumer groups, concerned health care professionals and others interested in serving on the MCAC to submit a letter of interest to apply for committee membership.

Letters of interest should be sent to: Sean Barrett, Federal Relations, Health Care Administration, Minnesota Department of Human Services, P.O. Box 64983, St. Paul, Minn., 55164-0983; or sean.barrett@state.mn.us .

Letters of interest will be accepted until the end of the business day on Feb. 15.

For further information, contact Sean Barrett, Minnesota Department of Human Services at 651-431-2298. TTY/TDD users can call the Minnesota Relay Service at 711 or 800-627-3529.
