Med-QUEST Healthcare Advisory Committee
The Med-QUEST Healthcare Advisory Committee (MHAC) is a federally mandated body (42 CFR Ch. IV § 431.12). The MHAC provides a formal mechanism to obtain and potentially integrate the opinions and perspectives of MQD members, MQD healthcare providers, and MQD stakeholders as they relate to the planning, delivery, and assessment of healthcare services provided by MQD. Public participation is encouraged.
The MHAC provides input and feedback on MQD programs and initiatives such as proposed policies, healthcare services, member and provider participation initiatives, the Hawaii Medicaid state plan, the quality strategy, managed care organization marketing materials, and Hawaii Medicaid demonstration waiver initiatives. The MHAC is an advisory-body and is not a decision-making body.
