Financing In-Home Asthma Care

Financing for In-home Asthma Care LogoThe Financing In-Home Asthma Care microsite within focuses on delivering and paying for in-home asthma care to improve outcomes for children with out of control asthma. Health care policy change is creating new opportunities for financing evidence-based in-home asthma care. This site explores those opportunities and the work required to deliver effective and sustainable in-home asthma care.

U.S. EPA and our partners, the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD), among others, are coordinating federal efforts on asthma as is described in the Coordinated Federal Action Plan to Reduce Asthma Disparities. This microsite, which consolidates information about financing in-home asthma care in order to deliver effective care, particularly in underserved communities, is one example of our effort.
