Get involved with Medicaid policy making

The DC Medical Care Advisory Committee (MCAC), which advises the Medicaid program on how it can best meet the needs of people on Medicaid, seeks new members.   Information about the MCAC is here and the nomination form is here.   I've known a good number of people who have been involved with this group and they learn a great deal and do, in fact, inform the work of the Medicaid program staff.   Plus, it's a good way to meet government and nonprofit folks working on Medicaid and health more generally.
