About the Medicaid and Exchange Advisory Board

The Medicaid and Exchange Advisory Board (MEAB) was created to advise and inform the Department of Vermont Health Access on policy development and program administration for the state’s Medicaid-funded programs and Vermont Health Connect.

The MEAB is made up of stakeholders who represent a variety of groups, including consumers, businesses and health care providers. These individuals were appointed by the Commissioner of the Department of Vermont Health Access and will serve staggered, three-year terms. If you are interested in more information about the MEAB or would like to be considered for a future appointment, please contact us.
