Funding Expands Access to Healthcare Services for Uninsured Patients

WACO, TX— Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas announces a five year Title X (pronounced “title ten”) grant to support preventive and family planning visits at Planned Parenthood’s Waco health center. The grant from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will provide healthcare services to 2,400 unduplicated patients annually for five years.

Title X will expand access to essential, preventive healthcare services for the Lubbock County. Services include:

  • full range of birth control methods (including IUDs and implants)

  • breast and cervical cancer screenings

  • testing and treatment for STIs, including HIV tests

  • PrEP and PEP medication to prevent HIV transmission

  • treatment for urinary tract and vaginal infections

  • annual well checks

  • HPV vaccines, flu vaccines, and other essential healthcare services

Same-day and telehealth appointments at ppgreatertx.org/WacoHealthcare or call 1-800-230-PLAN.

“The partnership with OASH is exciting news and will have a real and tangible impact on patients seeking sexual and reproductive health care in Waco,” said Tonya Capson, Regional Manager of the Waco health center. “This critical funding will help ensure that no matter your income or insurance coverage, you can get the life-saving reproductive health care you need when you need it.”

For more than 85 years, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas has been a trusted source for healthcare, advocacy, and medically accurate sex education. The majority of Planned Parenthood patients are uninsured, earn incomes below 300% of the federal poverty level, and trust Planned Parenthood for affordable birth control, sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment, and other reproductive healthcare services. All are welcome at Planned Parenthood regardless of insurance or documentation status, your income level, where you live or who you love.

This Title X project is supported by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $5,274,947 with $2,305,890 (44%) funded by OASH and $2,969,057 (56%) funded by non-government sources.
