Don’t miss Illinois NAELA’s Spring Unprogram!  This course has been approved for 6.25 general MCLE hours. We’re pleased to welcome back Kathy Butcher and Steven Milburn from the OIG to share their knowledge regarding Medicaid policy.   We’re also excited to share that we’ve secured presenters from DHS (thank you to James Siebert for helping coordinate this!).  DHS has requested that we submit questions/concerns to them beforehand so that they can address those during their presentation.  Therefore, we’re reaching out to our members for questions.  Please submit any questions/issues that you would like addressed by DHS through your registration for the program.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone!
