Mission statement of work

The Mission of the AUC Executive Committee is to assist the AUC in developing agreement among Minnesota medical and dental group purchasers and providers on standardized administrative processes when implementation of the processes will reduce administrative costs. Further, the Executive Committee serves to support the active participation of the AUC in ongoing administrative simplification, standardization and implementation of State and National health care reform efforts. The AUC Executive Committee also serves as a liaison between the AUC Operations Committee and the Minnesota Department of Health.
