Pediatric Council – New Regional members needed
The Kansas Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics is looking to reorganize our Pediatric Council. The goal is to have Chapter pediatrician members from across Kansas that can help identify issues, concerns and solutions with the Medicaid MCO organizations to provide better care for the children of Kansas.
Here are some specifics about being a Pediatric Council Member:
Member: Pediatric Council members would need to be KAAP members.
Meetings: The Pediatric Council will meet quarterly via a noon conference call.
Duties: Pediatric Council members would be key contacts for the MCO representatives in their area.
Please help KAAP build a strong Pediatric Council. If interested, please email Jennifer Mellick, MD, FAAP, KAAP President, firstname.lastname@example.org
KAAP Pediatric Council’s purpose is to improve the care of Kansas kids while making certain that the insurers of our state help to cover the care they receive. We will work with these companies to make them more aware of our needs to provide better care for our patients.
