T2000’s Jennifer Riley appointed to State Medicaid Managed Care Advisory Committee

Congratulations to Jennifer Riley!

Jennifer was recently appointed by Kyle Janek, Health and Human Services Executive Commissioner to the State Medicaid Managed Care Advisory Committee.


What is the State Medicaid Managed Care Advisory Committee?

The State Medicaid Managed Care Advisory Committee, created by Senate Bill 7 of the 83rd Texas Legislature (Regular Session), provides recommendations and ongoing input to HHSC on the statewide implementation and operation of Medicaid managed care. The committee looks at a range of issues, including program design and benefits, systemic concerns from consumers and providers, efficiency and quality of services delivered by Medicaid managed care organizations, contract requirements for Medicaid managed care, provider network adequacy, and trends in claims processing.

The committee also will help HHSC with policies related Medicaid managed care and share information on best practices with the Medicaid Regional Advisory Committees.  The State Medicaid Managed Care Advisory Committee serves as the central source for stakeholder input on the implementation and operation of Medicaid managed care.
