The Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 established the new Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) to review Medicaid and CHIP access and payment policies and to advise Congress on issues affecting Medicaid and CHIP [Section 506, Public Law 111-3 and Section 2801, Public Law 111-148]. The Act directed the Comptroller General of the United States to appoint MACPAC’s 17 members, with initial appointments made no later than January 1, 2010. In 2016, the appointment date was moved from January to May for future cycles.
The terms of MACPAC commissioners are intended to be staggered, with the first set of appointments made in January 2010 set at one, two, or three years. Commissioners may be appointed for subsequent three-year terms. A call for nominations is published in the Federal Register in the winter, and appointments are made in May of each year.
