Health Benefits and Cost Savings of Publicly Funded Family Planning
A Tool to Generate Estimates for Individual Programs and Providers
This tool enables users to estimate the impact of publicly funded family planning services in their state or service area, using data entered by the user about the number of contraceptive clients served, the number of specified tests performed and the state where services were provided. It may generate data on:
- cases of pregnancies prevented by outcomes and associated cost savings;
- cases of STIs prevented and associated cost savings; and
- cases of precancer and cervical cancer prevented and associated cost savings.
The formulas underlying this tool are based on analyses described in the report Publicly Supported Family Planning Services in the United States: Likely Need, Availability and Impact, 2016 and Publicly Supported Family Planning Services in the United States, 2016: Methodological Appendix..
These estimates should be viewed as approximations, because of variability among programs in terms of the populations served, the mix of methods provided and the testing protocols used. The results generated by this tool are subject to the accuracy and reliability of the data entered by the user.
Note: If no results are returned, the input numbers may be too small to generate reliable estimates of health benefits or cost savings. To estimate the total net savings of family planning services, you must input the number of contraceptive clients served.
