This dataset includes information on the Family Planning, Access, Care, and Treatment (Family PACT) Program providers for fiscal year (FY) 16-17. The data were retrieved from the Provider Master File (PMF) in the Management Information System/Decision Support System (MIS/DSS) data warehouse, which is maintained by the Provider Enrollment Division, and from the Office of Family Planning (OFP) which created its own production files/data sets. The Family PACT Program is administered by the California Department of Health Care Services, OFP Division and has been operating since 1997 to provide family planning and reproductive health services at no cost to California’s low-income residents of reproductive age. The program offers comprehensive family planning services, including contraception, pregnancy testing, and sterilization, as well as sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and limited cancer screening services. The variables in the dataset include provider number, name, type, specialty, geographic information, etc. For information about Family PACT provider enrollment please see http://www.familypact.org/Home/home-page.
