Medically Necessary: What does trans-affirming and inclusive health insurance look like?

Tuesday, November 10, 11:45A-12:45P

While health insurance companies and employers have made strides in increasing access to health insurance that covers gender affirming surgery, health insurance programs still mostly fall short of fully supporting trans employees in their full transition.  The complete, needed procedures are often not covered because they are deemed as “medically unnecessary.”  This panel program features transgender employees and industry leaders sharing their perspectives and needs, and how existing health insurance plans are not sufficient in fully supporting trans employees in their transitions.
