The Medical Care Advisory Committee

The Medical Care Advisory Committee (MCAC) is a public advisory group charged with advising the State's Medicaid agency, the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, on Medicaid policy and program changes.

Section 1902 (a) (4) of the federal Social Security Act (Title XIX) requires that each state establish a Medical Care Advisory Committee to advise the Medicaid agency in order to obtain federal matching funds for the Medicaid program.

The MCAC members meet quarterly via teleconference or face–to–face. The face–to–face meetings are held in communities so members may gain insight into community specific issues.
