Issue Brief: Telehealth & Implications for Asthma Care Coverage in Medicaid
The American Lung Association released an issue brief on Telehealth & Implications for Asthma Care Coverage in Medicaid. The issue brief explores the regulations and policies that govern the use of telehealth in Medicaid programs, how those policies have changed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the experiences of state asthma programs applying telehealth to care for individuals with asthma, and opportunities for state asthma programs to collaborate with their respective Medicaid partners regarding telehealth and asthma coverage.
We discussed this issue brief, as well as our new data on coverage and barriers to guidelines-based asthma care in state Medicaid programs, on a webcast recorded on July 8, 2021. You can view a recording of that event, as well as find all of our resources for the Asthma Guidelines-Based Care Coverage Project, at Lung.org/asthma-care-coverage.
