Confidential & Covered
NFPRHA believes in universal access to confidential family planning services. With an increasing number of patients gaining commercial health insurance, providers are grappling with how to ensure that confidentiality is maintained, particularly given the risk of health information disclosure through explanation of benefit forms (EOBs). NFPRHA’s Confidential & Covered project seeks to respond to the challenge of confidentiality in the context of a changing health care delivery environment. Confidential & Covered is expected to provide a tool for Title X grantees and subrecipients to determine the magnitude of revenue losses occurring in service sites due to the provision of confidential services and an array of recommended operational practices that maintain client confidentiality while preventing or mitigating revenue loss.

Confidential & Covered is one of three projects that make up the HHS Office of Population Affairs’ ACA Collaborative. The three primary grantees are Guttmacher Institute, NFPRHA, and Altarum Institute. Together, these organizations will study the impact of health system changes as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Title X centers. The ACA Collaborative will study if and why service sites continue to see a disproportionate number of uninsured clients and assess the long-term factors affecting the sustainability of Title X centers. These include costs, billing, reimbursements, and network inclusion, as well as confidentiality.
