The Medical Assistance Advisory Committee is
composed of health care provider representatives
and consumer representatives who meet six times
each year to discuss issues pertinent to the Medi-
cal Assistance Program and to provide expert
consultation and advice to the Assistant Secretary
for Medical Care Programs. The Secretary of
Health and Mental Hygiene and the Secretary of
Human Resources, or their designees, serve as ex
officio members of the Committee.

The Committee holds general meetings during
the months of September, December, January,
February, March, and May. This schedule was
chosen to allow the Committee maximum in-
volvement in the legislative process and the annu-
al planning process. Members are also required to
serve on one of the subcommittees, which review
legislation pending in Annapolis, objectives for
the Five Year Plan, or special programs.

The Office of Education and Training for Ad-
diction Services (OETAS) was created in 1976 by
Article 41, sec. 206D, of the Annotated Code of
Maryland. This law mandated the OETAS to
provide alcohol and drug abuse training to Mary-
land caregivers and administrators who interact
with substance abusers. OETAS also works with
the State Department of Personnel to ensure that
there are qualified counselors to meet manpower
needs of the field. The Office's primary responsi-
bility is to provide addiction training to agencies
functioning under the auspices of the Alcoholism
Control Administration and the Drug Abuse Ad-
ministration. In addition, OETAS provides addic-
tion training to other State and local agencies, as
well as community organizations such as local
school systems. Training offered by the Office of
Education and Training for Addiction Services is
usually presented in courses, workshops, semi-
nars, and customized agency programs.
