The Bell County Public Health District is a Federal Title X Family Planning provider. As a provider of Title X Family planning services we offer a wide range of birth control options. We offer short term birth control options such as condoms, diaphragms, female condoms, film, foam, Depo, NuvaRing and pills. We can also provide emergency contraception. In addition, we also offer Long-acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARCs) such as Nexplanon (with insertion on-site) and Intra-uterine Devices (IUDs). Our IUD brands include ParaGard, Mirena, and Liletta. IUD insertion also occurs on site.
In addition to birth control we perform pregnancy testing (we can provide Medicaid proof of pregnancy) and we also offer well-woman exams.
Among the programs we have for Family Planning services we have Title X Family Planning and Healthy Texas Women (HTW) programs for which we receive funding to offer a wider array of services to clients in need.
Title X Family Planning programs offer a wide variety of benefits to local communities. See the graphic below for the positive impacts of Title X in Bell County.
