2021 Title X Final Rule

On October 4, 2021, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Population Affairs (OPA) amended the Title X Family Planning regulations to restore access to equitable, affordable, client-centered, quality family planning services for more Americans. Ensuring such access for all clients, especially for low-income clients, in the Title X program creates opportunities for realigning the nation's family planning program with nationally recognized standards of care and improving the health of communities that have been historically underserved. The 2021 regulations also reinforce the program’s central tenets of quality, equity, and dignity for all individuals who seek Title X services and modernizes the more than 50-year-old program to better reflect the current health care system.
