Transgender Insurance Medical Policies


Virtually all major insurance companies recognize that transgender-related medical care is medically necessary and have a written policy describing their criteria for when plans they administer will cover it. Below is a list of such policies.

The fact that an insurance company is listed below does not mean that your particular plan will follow these guidelines. You must look to your individual policy to determine if transgender care is covered or excluded. Only if it is covered will the policies below apply.
