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.

Message from the Office of Family Planning
The Office of Family Planning has posted a Draft Update to the Family PACT Client Eligibility Determination policy for review and comment on the DHCS Family Planning Stakeholder Meeting webpage (under Program Updates tab). The policy is being updated to convert to using Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) counting rules for eligibility determination for Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT) program in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act. On April 29, 2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved California's State Plan Amendment 13-0021-MM1, effective retroactive to January 1, 2014, which incorporated MAGI-based eligibility groups into California's Medicaid State Plan, including individuals eligible for family planning served by Family PACT. Household income to determine income eligibility for Family PACT will be calculated using MAGI-based income methodologies. In addition to the MAGI updates, the draft Family PACT Policies, Procedures, and Billing Manual updated pages clarify the policy regarding other health coverage and confidentiality. If you have any comments regarding this policy, please send them to ProviderServices@dhcs.ca.gov by August 31, 2015. A direct link to the draft update is noted below.
