SB 207: Medi-Cal: Asthma Preventive Services (2013 - 2014)

Will increase access for Medi-Cal beneficiaries to asthma education and home environmental asthma trigger assessments by enabling the Department of Healthcare Services (DHCS) to cover these services provided by qualified professionals that are recommended by a licensed practitioner. The bill will also increase resources to support minor-to-moderate remediation of environmental asthma triggers, which includes low-cost but high impact approaches such as providing mattress and pillow allergen-impermeable covers, using trigger-capturing vacuums, and utilizing Integrated Pest Management.
