As the landscape of health care in America shifts to grapple with rising costs and improving health outcomes, housing conditions have become a new focus. Changes to the Medicaid program by the Affordable Care Act and other reforms have created new flexibility in health care spending and incentivized or mandated comprehensive approaches to health care that integrate social services.
In this webinar you will learn about new opportunities for integrating housing and health. The panelist will describe efforts to forge collaborations between housing and managed care organizations and initiatives to establish Medicaid reimbursement for asthma home visiting programs drawing from the Center for Housing Policy’s recent report, Affordable Housing’s Place in Health Care.
Presenter: Janet Viveiros, Center for Housing Policy, National Housing Conference
