Family PACT Updates Benefits for STD Treatment

March 30, 2016

Effective for dates of service on or after June 1, 2016, the Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (Family PACT) Program will align its policy and benefits related to treatment of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health Services STD Control Branch. The treatment regimen for gonorrhea and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) will be updated, and an additional treatment option will be available to treat persistent and recurrent cervicitis or nongonococcal urethritis.

Provider manual updates reflecting these policy and benefits changes will be released in a future Family PACT Update.
