Health Care for Trans* Patients

Posted on Updated on

Some insurance companies include in their policies “trans exclusions” — they will deny coverage for procedures related to transition. Increasingly, these companies are being encouraged — either through legal action, legislation, or advocacy — to change these policies.

While the Maryland Insurance Agency does not specifically ban insurance companies from denying coverage for transition-related medical procedures, it does confirm that insurance companies should not deny trans* patients coverage for other medical procedures.
