Facial gender reassignment surgery and breast reconstruction are health care needs exclusive to trans women, and not coincidentally, are most likely to be deemed "cosmetic" or not medically necessary by insurance companies. This workshop is essential for providers who work with trans women and trans women who want to appeal denials on their own. Gain an understanding of the specific medical evidence in support of medical necessity as well as an understanding of how best to appeal. This is an opportunity to ask questions to attorneys who focus exclusively on transgender health care access.
