CMFHP Asthma Management Program
Overview - The Asthma Management Program creates a unique partnership between the health plan, the providers and the patient. It places asthma management where it is needed most with the provider and the patient. Our certified asthma educators work with the staff and providers in each office to enhance and build a high quality, comprehensive asthma program that fits within the culture of each individual practice. Resources for participating offices include: a spirometer to use during the intervention, asthma action plans, educational resources and handouts, reimbursement for asthma education, access to Asthma Health Coaches, and an on going partnership and education.
