The MESC Organizers want to decrease the obstacles States may face in sending employees to the Conference. We are also interested in broadening State exposure to the information presented at the Conference. Through this program, we are committed to reimbursing the travel expenses and registration fee for one State employee per State. Preference will be given to State Personnel who have never attended the MESC as well as for State Personnel whose responsibilities are broader than the MMIS, for example a State Chief Information Officer, Medicaid Director, or other key decision maker.
Costs which may be reimbursable include the following: early government registration fees, transportation to and from the conference, government rate hotel rooms and parking.
New guidelines established this year include a) the participant must attend the entire conference and b) meals are not reimburseable. A complete set of guidelines will be provided to each of the accepted applicants.
