Travel Reimbursement Programs
March 11, 2017 in Current Update
Did you know that the MESC provides reimbursement assistance for State participants to attend the conference?
We are pleased to provide three categories of assistance to assist State staff to attend the conference:
State Staff Travel Reimbursement – NEW!
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 new 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.

One State employee who presents their State poster session is eligible for travel expenses to the MESC. Each year we have approximately thirty participants access this reimbursement. Help us reach our goal of 100% participation.
- Who is eligible? One State staff person per State who submits a Poster Session abstract and participates in the Thursday evening session.
- What do I have to do? Attendees from State government agencies are invited to submit posters individually or as teams to highlight a relevant project that they have initiated or completed within their State. Presenters participate in engaging their colleagues from across the country in an active discussion about their project during this fun and exciting networking event. Team poster submissions may include partners from the vendor community, universities, or other nonprofit organizations. Vendors may not submit posters individually but may participate as part of a State team.
- What costs are reimbursed? Travel costs to the MESC, hotel, registration fees and meals during times when the MESC is not offering meals.
