Technical Advisory Committee (Title XIX)

Technical Advisory Committee on Physician Services (Title XIX) is a quasi-governmental Committee that is provided for under KRS 205.590 (1) (a), as a result of action by the 1960 Kentucky Legislature. This law establishes a Committee membership of five physicians appointed by KMA, as it does for similar committees, on dental care, hospital care, nursing home care, and optometric care. These committees act in an advisory capacity and report directly to the Governor's Advisory Council for Medical Assistance. This committee shall keep the KMA Board and House informed of actions taken by the Committee and by the Advisory Council, which are of interest to the Association, and make appropriate recommendations concerning implementation of medical care programs in Kentucky provided for under Title XIX of the Social Security Act.
