Affordable Care Act and the Title X Program

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Along with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, the law put in place comprehensive health insurance reforms. The law makes preventive care—including family planning and related care—more accessible and affordable for many Americans. The information and resources provided here are intended to assist Title X-funded family planning centers and other safety net providers in implementing the new law.

Health Information Technology

With health care costs and quality assurance as central issues in health care reform, health information technology is viewed as a key tool in achieving both lower costs and improved quality of care.
