On September 15, 2015, HMA Information Services hosted the webinar, “Sustainable Funding for Asthma-Related Home Interventions.”
Home interventions aimed at eliminating key drivers of asthma attacks like mold, dust, pests and tobacco smoke can improve the lives of those with asthma and dramatically reduce the cost of this chronic disease. Unfortunately, not all asthma-related home interventions are reimbursed by payers, despite the well-documented return on investment. During this webinar, HMA Managing Principals Jack Meyer and Mike Nardone, and Ruth Ann Norton, president and CEO, Green & Healthy Homes Initiative, outlined how to make the business case for asthma-related home interventions and build a sustainable stream of funding for those initiatives.
Listen to the recording and:
- Learn how to obtain coverage of asthma-related home interventions by working with Medicaid through a variety of mechanisms, including targeted case management, state plan amendments, innovation grants and 1115 waivers.
- Assess the cost savings potential of asthma home visits, including reductions in emergency care, hospitalizations and school and work absenteeism.
