How to get trans health care covered by insurance

How do I know if my health insurance will cover trans-related care? What do I do if there is an explicit exclusion in my plan? How do I challenge a denial for things such as facial feminization or breast augmentation when the insurance company says it’s “cosmetic?” Can someone under 18 get surgery covered?

Join Noah Lewis, Executive Director of Transcend Legal, for a presentation answering those questions and more! This talk will be helpful for trans people, parents, providers and advocates.

Transcend Legal is a NYC-based organization dedicated to eliminating all trans-health exclusions and helping trans people get insurance coverage for trans-related health care.

This presentation is sponsored jointly by CrossPort and Heartland Trans Wellness.
