Adolescents are among those least likely to have access to health care, and they have the lowest rate of primary care use of any age group in the United States. Adolescents have unique health care needs that are not always addressed, and young people often face significant barriers to obtaining needed health care, including lack of insurance, financial difficulty, and lack of (or perceived lack of) confidentiality. Most adolescent morbidity and mortality is attributable to preventable risk factors, and AAP guidelines for quality adolescent health care include screening and counseling to promote healthy behaviors and pre- vent risky behaviors and for the provision of confidential care.
