webinar graphic

NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Most webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend the live meeting.

Across the nation, states are looking to contain the rising cost of Medicaid. State programs to control fraud and abuse—designed to prevent, identify, and prosecute improper payments and unlawful behavior that increase health care costs—offer an approach that everyone can support.

Learn about new opportunities under the Affordable Care Act and hear what states are doing to prevent Medicaid fraud and abuse, recover improper payments, and address these issues in Medicaid managed care programs.
