This toolkit offers a structured approach for addressing quality improvement and a collection of “lessons learned” by a diverse group of health plans serving Medicaid members. Whether your health plan intends to develop a new asthma management program or is seeking to improve an existing program, this toolkit offers practical, realistic approaches that can help you:

  • Recognize common barriers faced by Medicaid plans in achieving better care for members with asthma.
  • Develop strategies to overcome these barriers.
  • Review clinical and administrative strategies that other health plans have implemented.
  • Measure incremental and long-term change.
