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 Overview (7-12) (PDF)

The Department of Health Care Services, Office of Family Planning (OFP) is informing providers of programmatic changes to the Family PACT program. These changes are reflected in the December 2013 Family PACT bulletin and corresponding manual replacement pages (MRPs) to the Family PACT Policies, Procedures and Billing Instructions (PPBI) manual.
The Family PACT PPBI manual was updated as a result of the Family PACT Code Conversion. Effective for dates of service on or after December 30, 2013, the Department of Health Care Services will discontinue use of the current Family PACT program and Medi-Cal Family Planning HCPCS Level III local codes. The local codes will be replaced with HCPCS Level II national codes in order to comply with provisions of the 1996 Public Law 104-191, 45 CFR 162.1000. There will be no grace period. With the code conversion, current program policies were retained. Additionally, language in some PPBI sections were updated to clarify policy.
Lastly, as internet and email increasingly become common and cost efficient modes of communication, OFP intends to increase its electronic communication with providers. As such, OFP encourages providers and interested parties to routinely access the Family PACT website. Family PACT special announcements as well as other provider resources, such as upcoming training events, previously recorded webcast presentations, and online educational modules are available on this website. As a Family PACT provider, it is important that you remain current with Family PACT program policies and procedures.
We look forward to a continued partnership with you in the delivery of Family PACT services in 2014. If you have any questions related to billing, please call the Telephone Service Center at 1-800-541-5555. If you have any Family PACT administrative or clinical questions, please call OFP at (916) 650-0414 or email us at email@example.com.
