Learn how changes in state and federal laws are affecting each of these areas. Learn how to screen for potential eligibility, help clients enroll, file appeals and trouble-shoot. Gain a deeper understanding of effects of recent and upcoming changes to private insurance in Maine and the rights and responsibilities of the insured. Participants have an hour off for lunch on their own.
