The financing of asthma care is the third topic of the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program Task Force Report on the Cost Effectiveness, Quality of Care, and Financing of Asthma Care. This working group explored the effects of financing on access to services, treatment of asthma, and potential health outcomes. Over the course of a year, the working group collected and analyzed information pertaining to the various types of public and private health care financing mechanisms, including both insurance-based and non-insurance-based issues. The group examined the published literature and gathered information from four public hearings conducted across the nation. The result of this synthesis of information on health care financing and asthma care is a set of 12 recommendations that seek to improve the financing of asthma care.
