HARTFORD — State Rep. Theresa Conroy (D-105) was appointed to the state Council on Medical Assistance Program Oversight as an advocate for persons with substance abuse disabilities.

The council is a collaborative body consisting of legislators, Medicaid consumers, advocates, health care providers, insurers and state agencies to advise the state Department of Social Services on the development of Connecticut’s Medicaid Managed Care program and for legislative and public input to monitor the implementation of the program, according to a press release.

Conroy was appointed by House Majority Leader Joe Aresimowicz (D-30).

“I want to thank Majority Leader Aresimowicz for this new challenge,” Conroy said in a press release. “Making sure all Connecticut residents who are insured through Medicaid Managed Care have access to quality care is an important goal.”
