Family Planning Program
The Family Planning Program covers family planning services for women and men whose income is too high to qualify for full-benefit Medicaid, but is below certain limits. If you do not qualify for full-benefit Medicaid, you may still be eligible for Medicaid coverage of family planning services, even if you are enrolled in a Qualified Health Plan.
