Weekly Update From Andy
Basketball playoffs are here! This is an exciting time for those of us who spend much of the winter season traveling to basketball games. I'm looking forward to some great basketball. I'm hopeful that we'll see wins on the basketball court and in the legislature as well.
A special thanks to our related services professionals who bill Medicaid. Thanks for stepping up during the Medicaid state aid reimbursement period. Keep up the great work.
Have a great week. Andy
