National Academy of Sciences Discussion Papers on Health Care
Through a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation the Nemours Foundation explored the use of existing Medicaid authority to support prevention. The resulting resources describe initiatives intended to sustain approaches linking the clinic to community prevention efforts addressing chronic disease. These practical resources include case studies (described below), a roadmap, a
toolkit for states, and a white paper. Together, these resources bring to light how states have successfully created sustainable financing through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program for preventing chronic diseases at both the individual and population levels.
