Planned Parenthood participates in a federal funding program called Title X (pronounced Title Ten). The federal government provides money to family planning clinics, like Planned Parenthood, so that women and men who do not have health insurance can get care at reduced rates, or in some cases free, depending on their family income at the time of their visit.
Title X allows us to supplement birth control, breast and cervical cancer screening, and other reproductive health services.
This program does not pay for abortion care.
To qualify, we ask all clients seeking services at Planned Parenthood to present the most recent four-week snapshot of your income (such as recent pay stubs or, if you are unemployed, proof of your unemployment benefits or inability to work). This helps our staff determine what amount you can pay under Title X’s discounted fee scale.
There are a variety of services that Title X health centers may offer:
- Reproductive life / family planning counseling
- Gynecological examinations and basic lab tests
- Breast and cervical cancer screenings
- Contraceptive counseling and supplies/methods
- Testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases
- HIV testing and risk reduction counseling
- Pregnancy testing
- General health screenings for high blood pressure, diabetes and anemia
- Community education and outreach
To access Title X services at Planned Parenthood Arizona, in Phoenix, call 602.277.PLAN (7526); in Tucson, call 520.408.PLAN (7526); and elsewhere in Arizona, call toll-free 855.207.PLAN (7526).
