Transgender Healthcare Coverage

FOR MORE INFORMATION CALL 612-256-3253 OR EMAIL OUR CLERK AT INTAKE@NKA.COM

Some states, such as West Virginia, have state employee health plans and/or Medicaid policies that explicitly exclude transgender healthcare coverage. These exclusions have the effect of banning insurance coverage for care like hormone therapy or gender-affirming surgeries, including top surgery and SRS. Coverage could be denied even when a doctor determines such care is medically necessary for a particular individual. Under certain federal and state laws, including the Affordable Care Act, covered entities are not permitted to discriminatorily restrict a transgender individual’s access to healthcare.  If you are a state employee or if you receive insurance through Medicaid and were denied care based on a transgender health exclusion, contact our Civil Rights and Impact Litigation Group. Our clerk is available at 612-256-3253 or intake@nka.com.
