MESC 2020 Postponed until 2021

June 2, 2020 in Current Update

The MESC Planning Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Medicaid Enterprise Systems Conference.

While we are very disappointed that we will not be seeing you in person this August, we could not ignore the responses to our survey, reflecting many of you would not be able to attend based on funding restrictions or personal preference. Additionally, the city of Boston has severely restricted large gatherings and it is not clear when those restrictions will be lifted.

So, we will take a year and reunite in 2021. We will meet in a much changed environment, but the goals of the MESC will remain constant: to provide you a forum to hear the latest guidance and direction from the CMCS Data and Systems Group, to see and demo the technology that supports the Medicaid Program, and to meet with and learn from your peers and colleagues.

Our plan is to host MESC 2021 in Boston.

We are working with the Hynes Convention Center and our host hotels to secure dates in August 2021. We will provide you with updates as we make progress throughout the coming weeks. 

Between now and then, we will be working with CMS, States, and the Private Sector Technology Group to develop opportunities for learning and networking – be on the look-out for those announcements!

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we have worked through the decision making process. If you have any questions, please contact David Huffman at

Next Steps

June 2, 2020 in Current Update

Outlined below are some of the decisions that we have made regarding abstracts, registration and sponsorship fees. Please review and let us know if you have any questions.

Attendee Registrations

  • All fees for attendee registrations will be refunded at 100% in the coming weeks. The refund will be issued via the method of your payment (e.g., payment by check will receive a refund check).


  • Organizations who committed to sponsor the MESC will have a choice between the following options:
    • Retain the sponsorship(s) and have the payment credited to the 2021 sponsorships – there will be no additional fees in 2021.
    • Cancel the sponsorship(s) and receive a full refund – sponsorship fees for 2021 may increase.
  • We will reach out to your organization to facilitate your decision.

 Hotel Reservations

  • We encourage you to contact the hotel where you made a reservation directly to discuss canceling the reservation.

 Posters and Abstracts

  • The submitted Posters and Abstracts are under review for potential virtual sessions over the next 12 months.
  • Posters and Abstracts submitted prior to the due dates will receive a priority consideration for MESC 2021.
