Fact Sheet: Medicaid Medical Care Advisory Committees

Executive Summary

Federal law requires states to have a Medical Care Advisory Committee (MCAC) to advise the Medicaid agency about health and medical care services, help develop Medicaid policies, and give ideas about how the program should be run. This Fact Sheet sets forth the legal requirements for MCACs, reviews the relevant case law, offers examples of state laws and activities, and lists essential ingredients for making the MCAC an important component in Medicaid policy development and consumer involvement.
