Pathways to Medicaid Reimbursement for Pediatric Asthma Services

Treating, managing and reducing the burden of childhood asthma requires coordinated interventions that integrate community‐based approaches into patient care and take the management of asthma beyond the doctor’s office.

Evidence‐based, community‐focused interventions, which help children and their families to proactively manage their condition and mitigate asthma triggers, are fundamental to successful asthma control and show a significant return on investment.

Medicaid offers several strategies for expanding effective community‐based asthma programs for low‐income and medically‐underserved populations. The attached fact sheet describes these various strategies available to states as they seek ways of supporting community asthma management.
