Gateway Health covers family planning services. These services include:
■ Pregnancy testing
■ Testing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases
■ Birth control supplies, including up to a 12-month supply of oral contraceptives
■ Family planning education and counseling
In April 2014, the Office of Population Affairs (OPA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued the report, Providing Quality Family Planning Services (QFP), which further supports the need for these services.
Please see the PA Medicaid Provider Manual for more information.
Gateway Health encourages prescribers of contraceptives to provide information about all family planning options available to women. The printout below can be shared with Gateway Health Members on all family planning options.
