Button-RSVPA new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulation expands the scope of professionals who may be reimbursed for providing preventive services to Medicaid beneficiaries. This ruling could positively impact childhood asthma management outside of the health provider’s office.

Join the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Merck Childhood Asthma Network, Inc. (MCAN) for an informative webinar on Thursday, Feb. 13 from 2-3 p.m. ET to learn more about the ruling and how to engage your state’s Medicaid agency.

The Webinar will explore the value of evidence based interventions utilizing asthma educators and community health workers and potential savings in hospitalization and emergency room visits. Presenters will also discuss the potential of the ruling and other health insurer reimbursement options to improve asthma disparities.
