An Opportunity for States to Fund Community-Based Prevention Programs

Community-based prevention programs (CBPPs) can serve as an important tool for states to improve health outcomes and reduce costs. New federal authority for states to reimburse for preventive services for physical and mental health provided by unlicensed providers may greatly expand the use of CBPPs. As states consider how to improve health outcomes and reduce costs, many are examining the critical role that changing individuals’ health choices can play in those efforts.
