NCACH Governing Board

NCACH Governing Board

The North Central Accountable Community of Health (NCACH) is comprised of a core team of staff and led by a Governing Board, who provides direction, policy and represents stakeholder groups in the community. Each Medicaid Transformation project is being addressed within our Workgroups, and we rely on our Coalitions for Health Improvement for critical feedback and support during the Transformation. Each group holds monthly or quarterly meetings. These meetings are open to all community members who want to learn more about the work of the NCACH.

In our efforts to maintain transparency and remain accountable to our community, all Governing Board, Workgroup, and Coalitions for Health Improvement meeting minutes, presentations, and attachments are available to the public and maintained on our website.

Recordings of recent NCACH Governing Board meetings conducted over Zoom are available here on the NCACH YouTube channel.

Please visit our monthly calendar (linked below) to see upcoming events, meetings, and more.
