Promoting Prevention through the ACA! New America Media Published Article on Asthma Preventive Coverage

NAM: In California’s Contra Costa County, New America Media reported that an estimated 191,000 children and adults have been diagnosed with asthma. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) new preventive services, such as Contra Costa’s first asthma treatment clinic, are going into effect to promote preventive care. “The new clinic aims to reduce the number of asthma patients using emergency rooms, by helping to develop consistent management plans and a more preventative approach, with an emphasis on self-management,” reported NAM.
