In the spring of 2014, the National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) conducted a nationwide survey to identify states where healthcare financing for lead poisoning follow-up or home-based asthma services is already in place or pending.
The survey results are summarized in two reports:
· Healthcare Financing of Healthy Homes: Findings from a 2014 Nationwide Survey of State Reimbursement Policies - This full-length 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.
· Healthcare Financing of Healthy Homes: Recommendations for Increasing the Number of States with Medicaid Coverage of Lead Follow-Up and Home-Based Asthma Services - This shorter 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.
