The governor’s office is seeking applicants for a vacant position on the Medical Services Board (the state board that oversees the Medicaid program across many professions). While a dentist has served in the past, currently no dentist serves on this board. Having a dentist would provide good expertise, given the ongoing changes to Medicaid dental benefits. The person appointed to this position must reside in Congressional District 7 (generally north and west metro Denver area), be either a registered republican or an unaffiliated voter and have knowledge of medical assistance programs. Anyone who is interested in being considered for an appointment to the board should submit an application for membership through the Governor’s Office of Boards and Commissions.
The board is comprised of 11 members with at least one member from each congressional district and no more than six members from the same political party. Members are appointed by the governor, confirmed by the senate and serve at the pleasure of the governor for four year terms. Information regarding current members is available by clicking here.
Any questions regarding the board or the application process can be directed to Medical Services Board Coordinator Judi Carey at 303-866-4416.
