Asthma Medicaid Data

Medicaid claims data comes from the Michigan Data Warehouse at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Analysis of paid Medicaid claims, encounters, and prescription data provide a unique and powerful perspective on key components of asthma care. Michigan's Medicaid programs are funded by state and federal funds, and serve socioeconomically vulnerable children and adults.
