California Family Health Council (CFHC) operates the largest Title X (ten) system in the nation that provides more than one million women, men and teens in California with sexual and reproductive health care each year. Title X of the Public Health Service Act was established in 1970 with broad bi-partisan support. As the nation’s only dedicated source of federal funding for family planning services, Title X provides high quality family planning and other related sexual and reproductive health services to low-income and uninsured individuals who may otherwise lack access to health care. The Title X program is administered by the national Office of Population Affairs (OPA).

Title X in California
OPA provides Title X funding to CFHC to re-grant to health care providers throughout California to support the delivery of quality sexual and reproductive health care. In addition, CFHC provides technical assistance to help Title X providers meet Title X Guidelines and successfully navigate the challenges and opportunities created by a changing health care environment.
Title X funded health centers must provide an array of confidential preventive health services including contraceptive services, pregnancy testing, pelvic exams, screening for breast and cervical cancer, screening for STDs including HIV/AIDS, basic infertility services, health education and referrals for other health and social services. Along with the delivery of medical services, Title X funds support critical activities that are not reimbursable under Medi-Cal or commercial insurance including staff salaries, infrastructure improvements, individual patient education or community outreach.
CFHC’s diverse Title X provider network includes:
- Federally qualified health centers and look-alikes
- County health departments
- Free clinics
- Stand alone family planning providers
- Planned Parenthood affiliates
Six in 10 women who obtain health care from a family planning provider consider it to be their only or usual source of health care. Learn more about Title X in California.
