Managed Care Magazine Features Joseph Potter on Defunding Planned Parenthood in Texas
Managed Care Magazine.

Managed Care Magazine features Joseph Potter as an expert on contraceptive services in an article on defunding Planned Parenthood in Texas.

Potter describes some of the consequences of defunding Planned Parenthood: “The problem of actually finding a new provider is nontrivial... Prescribing contraception is specialized and highly personalized for each individual. This general assumption that there are tons of federally qualified health centers or private providers who can step in to fill the void doesn’t work out so well, because if they’re not in the daily business of providing family planning, they probably don’t stock the birth-control methods that a person needs and they may not even have much experience prescribing them.”
