With rising asthma prevalence and numerous changes in the health care system, California faces a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of a national movement by providing much needed prevention-oriented services to its most vulnerable residents. This policy brief is a call to action for the California Department of Health Care Services, Medi-Cal managed care organizations, foundations, hospital community benefit programs, social impact investors, and others to seize these opportunities that will improve the lives of millions of people with asthma.

PHI’s Regional Asthma Management and Prevention Program works to secure sustainable financing for asthma education and home environmental trigger remediation programs in California, based on the strong evidence that they improve health outcomes and reduce health care costs, particularly for those with poorly controlled asthma. The policy brief outlines recommendations to help achieve this goal.
