Maryland: Asthma medication support for your practice

Last modified: June 30, 2021

Are your asthmatic patients experiencing an increase in asthma exacerbations? Maybe it’s due to a lack of adherence to their asthma care plan, which often includes decreased use of long-term controller medications and increased use of short-acting inhalers. 

We want to help you reach out to patients who may need to schedule an office visit to understand better how to manage their asthma. We can provide a list of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan members in Maryland with an asthma medication ratio of greater than 0.50. You can use this list to schedule an office visit to discuss their asthma medication usage and reinforce their understanding of your instructions and treatment plan.

For prescribers

To help patients remember to fill and take their medication, we encourage you to prescribe a 90-day supply if appropriate. Patients are only responsible for 1 copay (if applicable) per medication.
