About Family PACT
Family PACT is California’s innovative approach to provide comprehensive family planning services to low-income women and men. The goals of this health program are to promote optimal reproductive health and to reduce unplanned pregnancy by lowering the barriers that many women and men with unmet need face in obtaining family planning services. The program fills a critical gap in health care for under-insured and uninsured Californians.
Client Eligibility and Enrollment
Family PACT clients are female and male residents of California with a family income at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level with no other source of family planning coverage. Clients are individuals with a medical necessity for family planning services who do not have Medi-Cal and do not have access to health insurance. Medi-Cal clients with an unmet share of cost may also be eligible. Eligibility determination and enrollment are conducted at the provider’s office with point of service activation of a client membership card.

Individual client reproductive health education and counseling is an ongoing component of all services.
