Through the Asthma Guidelines-Based Care Coverage Project, the American Lung Association tracks coverage and related barriers in seven different areas of asthma care, including quick relief medications, controller medications, devices, allergy testing, allergen immunotherapy, home visits and interventions, and self-management education. This project is based on the recommendations in the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) Guidelines. The following materials provide a further look into the NAEPP Guidelines and the Asthma Guidelines-Based Care Coverage Project.

The Lung Association has also created additional resources for stakeholders to learn about guidelines-based asthma care coverage in Medicaid and promote collaboration between public health professionals and state Medicaid programs, Medicaid managed care organizations, and other stakeholders to address gaps in guidelines-based asthma care coverage.
