Douglas County’s local Coordinated Care Organization (CCO), Umpqua Health Alliance (UHA) is taking applications through Friday, June 7, 2013 for people interested in serving on its Community Advisory Council (CAC). The CAC is mandated by state Medicaid law and provides a means for community input into the operation of the CCO.
The CAC is open to anyone, but state law requires that a majority of the board represent Medicaid health care consumers.
You can get more information and apply online at Umpqua Health Alliance website:
According to Umpqua Health Alliance, the “role of the Council is to provide advice to the UHA Board on various issues” including such things as “identifying preventive care practices, assessing the community’s current health status and needs, improving member engagement and providing recommendations to the transformation plan”, as well as help review our local CCO’s operations during the annual progress report process.
