Join community call on Trans healthcare
With Medicare down: How we can win the rest
Date of community call: Monday, June 16, 2014, 3pm EDT – 4pm EDT
After years of advocacy, healthcare programs are finally catching up to the medical consensus on transgender healthcare. We will soon be able to cross off medical exclusions from our policy agenda. But while the path forward is clearer than ever, much more work remains. The recent Medicare ruling opens coverage for transition-related care and that victory is part of a national strategy to end prejudice in the U.S. healthcare system.
Please join this community call to learn about the next phase in advocating for transgender healthcare rights in public and private insurance plans. Participants will also have an opportunity to learn more about the significance of the Medicare ruling and where it fits in the scheme of achieving inclusive coverage across the board.
