Title X Family Planning Services


At Centerpoint Health, your well-being and family planning needs are our top priority. We are committed to delivering comprehensive healthcare, including Title X family planning services, available to all individuals irrespective of their ability to pay. Title X services are voluntary, ensuring confidentiality without being a prerequisite for any other services. 


What is Title X? 

Title X is a federal program administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Population Affairs (OPA). Its primary goal is to ensure access to family planning and reproductive health services for everyone, regardless of income or insurance status. Centerpoint Health actively participates in this program, proud to provide quality care to our community. 


Title X offers affordable or no-cost reproductive health care services for both women and men, including birth control, pap smears, breast exams, STI testing, and more. The program focuses on serving individuals and families with low incomes, operating through grants to over 3500 clinical sites, including public health departments and non-profit health centers. 


For those with family incomes below 100% of the most recent federal poverty level (FPL) guidelines, Title X services are provided at no charge. Additionally, services are discounted on a sliding scale for individuals with family incomes between 101-250% of the FPL. In 2019, 64% of clients had family incomes at or below 100% FPL, while 88% had family incomes below 250% of the FPL.
