Who We Are

MLTCQRAC was established by the 1995 Legislative Assembly and consists of 12 stakeholders including the Long-Term Care Ombudsman, consumers, advocates, and providers. Council appointments are made by the Governor, the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House, the Governor’s Commission on Senior Services and the Oregon Disabilities Commission.

MLTCQRAC is directed to advise the Department of Human Services and the Oregon Health Authority on changes or modifications to the Medicaid reimbursement system and the adverse and positive effects of the changes or modifications on the quality of long-term care and community-based services and reimbursement for long-term care and community-based services.

What We Do

At the beginning of each legislative session, the Council reviews the Governor’s Recommended Budget for Aging and People with Disabilities (APD). The Council may submit a recommendation in support of or opposition of the Governor’s Recommended Budget.  DHS is required to submit any proposed change or modification to the Medicaid reimbursement system (those proposed changes or modifications with a proposed impact in excess of $100,000.00) to the Council for their review and written advis​ory recommendations.
