Sustainable Financing Mechanisms Case Studies
While several states or individual managed care organizations provide Medicaid coverage for services delivered in the home environment related to asthma and lead exposure, some others utilize other financing mechanisms as either a complement or an alternative to healthcare financing. The National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) interviewed several states providing one or more home-based asthma services, childhood lead services, or healthy home services using funding other than Medicaid or grants; the interviews provided information on the various funding mechanisms and how they operate, the programs being funded and how they operate, outcome and evaluation information (where available), and lessons learned. These financing mechanisms can be a model for other states, and the information has been compiled into brief summaries available here by state, focus area, and funding type.
With generous funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, NCHH published this series of 12 case studies in 2017 and 2019.
