Confidentiality Protections

State Policies Affecting the Assurance of Confidential Care for Adolescents
by Harriette B. Fox and Stephanie J. Limb, April 2008.
Based on interviews with state Medicaid staff and managed care organization officials and a review of states' minor consent laws, this fact sheet examines the mailing home of explanation of benefit statements for publicly insured adolescents. It looks at how and why Medicaid agencies and their contracting managed care organizations mail EOBs home and also examines whether state policies to exclude particular services from EOB mailings are consistent with state policies allowing minor consent.
