National Health Law Program in Comments to HHS Opposes Changes to Title X

Executive Summary

In comments to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the National Health law Program strongly opposes the proposed changes to the Title X program. NHeLP argues that by reconfiguring who receives Title X funding, as well as the scope of family planning methods and services that those providers offer, the proposed regulations would make it more difficult for low-income individuals to obtain the quality family planning services that they need and have historically received.

Title X is the only federal program in the country dedicated solely to providing family planning and related preventive services. In 2016, Title X sites provided high quality family planning services to more than four million patients.2 The program is a critical source of health care for low-income and underserved individuals and communities.
