MHHC has provided federal Title X-funded family planning services for over
30 years. Family planning services are fully integrated into MHHC’s
medical model of care. We provide accessible,
confidential reproductive health care services to
women, men and adolescents, especially low-income individuals and those
without health insurance. This means that when you visit your provider at MHHC they will ask you
about your need for reproductive health services and support.
