Confidential and Covered: Protecting Patients While Preventing Revenue Loss

Investigator: Claire Brindis, DrPH

Location(s): United States


Confidential & Covered is a three-year research project designed to identify policies and practices to mitigate revenue loss at Title X family planning providers due to the provision of confidential health services. The purpose is to improve service sites’ sustainability and preserve one of Title X’s core principles, namely the provision of confidential services for patients served by this essential program. Confidential & Covered partnered with the Center for Adolescent Health & the Law, The George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health, and the University of California, San Francisco’s Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health to conduct research on insurance use and confidentiality throughout the payment process-in other words, payment that does not breach privacy.
