Council on Medical Assistance Program Oversight Council on Medical Assistance Program Oversight Husky Health

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.

MQISSP: Medicaid Quality Improvement and Shared Savings Program

The Connecticut Department of Social Services (Department) is launching a planning process to develop a new, upside-only shared savings initiative entitled the Medicaid Quality Improvement and Shared Savings Program (MQISSP). The goal of MQISSP, which is a component of the State Innovation Model, is to improve quality and experience of care for Medicaid beneficiaries currently being served by Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Advanced Networks. The Department will select FQHCs and Advanced Networks to become MQISSP Participating Entities via a Request for Proposals process.
