Medicaid Prevention Pathways Toolkit Supports Asthma Financing Efforts

In early 2017 Nemours, a health care system and advocacy organization, released its “Medicaid Prevention Pathways” toolkit, which describes options for funding innovative upstream and population health prevention activities through Medicaid. The toolkit “illustrates the range of Medicaid and CHIP options that states can use to sustain approaches that link clinic to community prevention to address chronic disease [including asthma] and how best to successfully put these strategies in place on the ground.” The toolkit includes a roadmap with a range of options, planning tools for states, three in-depth case studies, and a white paper.
