Report Reveals Texas Women’s Health Program Inflates Number of Medical Providers

March 27, 2015

Some Texas counties do not have any valid providers under the program. 

We recently conducted an in-depth spot check of all the Texas Women’s Health Program (TWHP) provider listings in 26 Texas counties to check and see if the providers it lists on its website are actually offering full gynecology services. Of the 681 TWHP provider listings, there are only 113 actual providers offering services and taking new TWHP clients. Of these places we called, many did not routinely offer the preventative gynecological services that TWHP is meant to cover because they are emergency rooms, fertility clinics and, in one instance, a Subway Sandwich shop.
