About the Webinar
The National Alliance for Medicaid in Education (NAME) supports professionals engaged in school-based Medicaid reimbursement. We look forward to introducing our organization to participants.
This webinar will introduce our organization, and provide a preview of our upcoming conference and a peek into the current trends and issues associated with Medicaid programs in public schools. At NAME, we know that student health and wellness is essential to learning. It is an exciting time for all who share that vision as new legislation tied to Medicaid reimbursement strongly supports the services that can be offered in the school setting. The coming year is sure to be a season of growth. You will want to partner with us on this journey!
