Benefits of family planning:
By averting unintended pregnancies, family planning programs greatly reduce health and welfare costs. Each public dollar spent to provide family planning services saves an average of $3.74 in Medicaid costs for pregnancy-related services and newborn care, according to the Alan Guttmacher Institute. Over 27,000 unintended pregnancies are prevented each year in Colorado as a direct result of state and federally funded family planning services.
Men and women, including teens, are eligible for these services. Fees are based on sliding fee scale. Medicaid is accepted.
