Healthcare Financing of Healthy Homes - Nationwide Survey Results and Recommendations Now Available

NCHH has released two new reports summarizing results from a 2014 nationwide survey to identify states where healthcare financing for lead follow-up or home-based asthma services is already in place or pending.  

The full length survey report documents current policies regarding reimbursement for environmental health services in the homes of people with asthma and children exposed to lead. It contains the project’s complete findings and methodology as well as a wealth of supporting information.  

A shorter recommendations report highlights opportunities for increasing access to these benefits. It includes an executive summary with key findings and several recommendations for galvanizing an increased healthcare investment in lead follow-up and home-based asthma services.

Ask NCHH

I was told that my child's blood lead level was "negative" the last time that I had him/her tested. Should I have him/her re-tested?

Ask your physician for the specific result of the last blood test. If the number was higher than 5 ug/dL, testing should be repeated to confirm. Having blood drawn from your child’s vein is more accurate than a finger stick test. Make sure other children under 6 years of age, developmentally delayed children, and pregnant women get tested as well.
