We have had 2 new members join the council and they are Jesus Vesga who has become our CPG Representative and Megan Maxwell who has become our HOPWA Representative. We have received an application from Region 2 for the Care Coordination seat. The matrix has been updated and will be updated every three months. Lisa asked members to look at the committee list and make sure that they are on the correct committee. On the Consumer Advisory Bureau we have 3 open seats; 4, 5, and 9.
Planning Committee – Brian Revalee and Tabitha Sprigler gave a presentation on the changes to the Comprehensive Plan.
Dental AD HOC – Dr. Stuart Schrader has agreed to assist the dental committee to explore the feasibility of Part F dental. His staff is currently trying to get copies of proposals from other Dental Schools that receive Part F to get a better idea of what is feasible. Dr. Schrader has been added to the Dental AD HOC Committee and is willing to serve on the CHSPAC Medical AD HOC Committee in the unfilled dental slot. Part F Dental Grants have ranged from $800 – $250 million. Neal Carnes has been added to the Dental AD HOC Committee and is also trying to secure proposals from his Part B partners in other states. As soon as the Resource Guide is updated the Dental AD HOC Committee will conduct further research into the dental resources listed along with those listed on the ISDH Oral Health Division Dental Resource Guide for low-income patients, to better identify programs that are feasible for our clients. The committee will work to develop dental resource brochures for the care coordination and clinical sites to better inform clients about their dental options.
Medical AD HOC – Neal gave update that EIP will cover seasonal flu shots but will not cover the H1N1 vaccination. CHANTIX is covered under ADAP & ICHIA once in a lifetime.
Chair and Vice Chair nominations were submitted via e-mail. Only two members were nominated: Bryan Amador and Jeff Wolfe. CHSPAC members casted their vote via private ballots at the meeting.
Bryan Amador will be the Chair of CHSPAC and Jeff Wolfe will be Vice Chair for CHSPAC for year 2010.
