Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a pervasive, multigenerational threat to individual and community health — a public health problem that systemic intervention can curtail. The evolving health care payment landscape offers public and private entities some innovative opportunities to break the cycle of violence and improve the health, well-being, and safety of all individuals.

Medi-Cal and other state Medicaid agencies can adopt new policy recommendations that connect survivors and individuals at risk with essential health care and social support services, enabling healing and preventing intimate partner violence in future generations.
