Healthcare Financing of Healthy Homes: New Resource Library
The National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) launched a new suite of online resources to help public health and housing agencies understand and identify opportunities to partner with healthcare entities in the provision of better quality housing.
The new resource library consolidates the vast array of informational resources on healthy housing and healthcare financing into a one-stop location. Users can learn about strategies for financing healthy homes (such as asthma trigger management and lead poisoning prevention) through real-world case studies, information about emerging opportunities, and links to relevant resources and background materials.
The resource library includes reports and technical briefs developed by other organizations and three new technical briefs created by NCHH:
- Pathways to Reimbursement: Understanding and Expanding Medicaid Services in Your State
- Hospital Community Benefits: Opportunities for Healthy Homes
- Reimbursement for Healthy Homes Services: A Case Study of Leveraging Existing Medicaid Authority in Texas
The library also includes a discussion module and two-question survey for users to share ideas and resources. NCHH plans to update and refine the tool as new information and opportunities emerge.
