New Brief Explains Key Elements of the Biden Administration’s Proposed Title X Regulations
Regulations Are Currently Open for Public Comment
On April 15th, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published proposed regulations for the Title X federal family planning program to replace the Trump Administration’s rules, which prohibited abortion referrals and co-located abortion services. The Biden Administration proposes to largely re-instate the Title X regulations that were in place from 1993-2019, with new additions focusing on “ensuring access to equitable, affordable, client-centered, quality family planning services” for all clients. HHS is accepting public comments on the newly proposed Title X regulations until May 17, 2021. A new KFF brief explains key elements of the proposed Title X regulations.
