Finding Innovative Ways to Sustainably Finance Asthma Management and Prevention

Image for Finding Innovative Ways to Sustainably Finance Asthma Management and Prevention

Regional Asthma Management and Prevention (RAMP) is leading the way in advocating for sustainable financing for asthma services in California, working to build significant momentum with asthma advocates across the state.

Through a multi-faceted approach, RAMP advanced the incorporation of evidence-based prevention activities in health care policies and practices—for example, working to increase the understanding of the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) staff on effective asthma interventions that improve health outcomes and reduce utilization, which will impact 1.1 million Medi-Cal beneficiaries diagnosed with asthma. They’ve also trained 100 asthma advocates and policymakers on best practices and opportunities to influence state policy. And some of RAMP’s advocacy efforts are reflected in California’s policies, such as the Health Homes Program development, the 1115 waiver language, a draft State Plan Amendment invoking the Preventive Services Rule, and the selection of asthma quality metrics for Medi-Cal Managed Care Organizations.
