Medicaid Advisory Committee

The Medicaid Advisory Committee gives feedback and advice about Medicaid in Wisconsin. The group can affect Medicaid programs and the people who use them. Feedback and advice goes to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS). DHS runs Medicaid in Wisconsin.

Members attend four online meetings each year. They talk with the Medicaid director and staff about program plans and decisions. They also get updates, have discussions, and ask questions.

The Medicaid director selects the committee members. Members participate for 2-4 years.

All committee meetings are open to the public. Time is set aside at the beginning of each meeting for comments from the public.

Read the Medicaid Advisory Committee charter (PDF) to learn more about the group.

June 19, 9–11 a.m.
