Providers Delivering Family Planning, Access, Care, and Treatment (PACT) Services, by Fiscal Years
This dataset contains information on the number of providers delivering services through the Family Planning, Access, Care, and Treatment (Family PACT) Program (https://www.dhcs.ca.gov/services/ofp/Pages/OfficeofFamilyPlanning.aspx) from July 1, 2003 through June 30, 2016. Delivering Family PACT services was defined as having been reimbursed for at least one claim for any services through Family PACT. Providers for whom all Family PACT claims have been denied were not designated as delivering providers. All Family PACT providers must also be enrolled as Medi-Cal providers, and Medi-Cal clinician providers who are not enrolled in Family PACT may provide Family PACT services by referral from an enrolled Family PACT provider. This dataset includes the following variables: enrolled Family PACT clinician providers, Medi-Cal clinician providers (not enrolled in Family PACT), total clinician providers, pharmacies, labs, and the percent change in all of these variables from the previous fiscal year. Providers are counted according to their provider type. For example, if a laboratory or pharmacy is associated with a clinician provider both the laboratory or pharmacy and the clinician are counted. In the eighteen full fiscal year (FY) of operation, FY 2015-16, 6,886 providers were reimbursed for services delivered under the Family PACT Program. Of these, 2,378 were clinician providers, 4,382 were pharmacy providers, and 126 were laboratories. Of the 2,378 clinician providers, 2,049 were also enrolled in Family PACT. The remaining 329 clinician providers delivered services on a referral basis and are referred to simply as Medi-Cal providers. Medi-Cal providers often deliver specialized services a Family PACT provider does not perform, such as sterilization.
