Title X Family Planning Services

Title X (“Title Ten”) is a federal grant program that allows Mississippians to get free or low-cost care for birth control, STD testing and treatment, HIV testing, cancer screenings, and many other important family planning and preventive healthcare services.

In Mississippi, Title X clinics are required to offer confidential care to any patient, including minors. This means that minors can receive services without their parents being notified.

The cost of services provided at Title X clinics depends on your income, with many patients qualifying for discounted or free care.

Title X services in Mississippi are provided by Converge

Federally Qualified Health Centers provide primary health care services, including reproductive health and contraceptive access, to all community residents, regardless of financial or insurance status.
