Thank you for your interest in helping to advise Louisiana Medicaid through serving on the Medical Advisory Committee or one of the Medical Advisory Subcommittees.
The purpose of the Committee is to provide medical expertise and consultation to the Medicaid program to help advance its goal of meeting the health needs of all Medicaid members. The Medical Advisory Committee meets quarterly in Baton Rouge and the meetings are a mixture of special presentations, discussions, and an open forum. (Please note that during the COVID-19 event, Committee meetings have transitioned to an all virtual format.)
In addition to the Medical Advisory Committee, there are also several focused subcommittees including adult medicine, emergency medicine, behavioral health, obstetrics/gynecology, neonatology, pediatrics and dentistry. These subcommittees discuss clinical topics of interest either generated by the subcommittee members themselves or posed by Louisiana Medicaid. Additionally, Louisiana Medicaid may convene ad hoc subcommittees to consult on various topics. Therefore, even if the nominee’s specialty is not in the list below, please submit the nomination for future consideration.
Louisiana Medicaid values gender/sex, racial/ethnic, and geographic diversity as well as diversity in nominees’ role in the health care system (e.g., Medicaid member, member advocate, provider, etc.).
Membership in the Medical Advisory Committee entails participation in quarterly meetings for a term of three years including attending in-person at least once per year.
Participation in the Medical Advisory Subcommittees entails attending regular virtual meetings for a term of at least one year, as well as recruitment and engagement with experts from the field and within the Committee.
