The MO HealthNet Managed Care Quality Assessment and Improvement (QA&I) Advisory Group was created with the inception of Managed Care.  The purpose of the QA&I Advisory Group is to impact service utilization through collaborative monitoring and continuous quality improvement activities.  The QA&I Advisory Group and task forces assist in maintaining an open forum for collaboration and communication among

  • Managed Care Organizations (MCOs),
  • other stakeholders (i.e. advocates, consumers, and providers),
  • and state agencies (the Department of Mental Health; Social Services; Insurance, Financial Institutions, and Professional Registration;  Elementary and Secondary Education; and Health and Senior Services).

The QA&I Advisory Group meets on a quarterly basis.
