What is Family PACT?
Family PACT is a limited benefits health program that provides family planning services and limited family planning-related services. Benefits include all FDA approved contraceptive methods and supplies, family planning counseling and education, sexually transmitted infection (STIs) testing & treatment, HIV screening, cervical cancer screening, male and female permanent contraception, and limited infertility services. The program also provides access to onsite and prescriptions that can be filled at a pharmacy that accepts Medi-Cal for drugs/supplies covered under Family PACT. Family PACT is not considered health insurance.
