Welcome to Family PACT
The Office of Family Planning (OFP) is charged by the California Legislature “to make available to citizens of the State who are of childbearing age comprehensive medical knowledge, assistance, and services relating to the planning of families”. The purpose of family planning is to provide women and men a means by which they decide for themselves the number, timing, and spacing of their children.
The OFP administers the Family Planning, Access, Care, and Treatment (Family PACT) program. Family PACT is California’s innovative approach to provide comprehensive family planning services to eligible low income (under 200% federal poverty level) men and women. Family PACT serves 1.8 million income eligible men and women of childbearing age through a network of 2,200 public and private providers. Services include comprehensive education, assistance, and services relating to family planning.

Family PACT Retroactive Eligibility Certification and Claim Process
Effective April 1, 2011, the Family PACT program implemented a retroactive eligibility certification procedure and claim process for newly-enrolled qualified Family PACT clients.
Once a new client has been certified as eligible for Family PACT, the Family PACT provider shall ask the new-enrolled client if he or she received a Family PACT-covered family planning and/or reproductive health service during the three-month period prior to the month that the client was enrolled in the Family PACT program. If the client responds affirmatively, the Family PACT provider will give the client retroactive eligibility information and a Retroactive Eligibility Certification (REC) Form (CDPH 4001) for completion. The Family PACT provider accepts responsibility for appropriate onsite determination of retroactive eligibility according to program guidelines and administrative practices.
The Family PACT provider will then give the client a copy of the retroactive eligibility information and the completed CDPH 4001 form for client claim processing.
