Recent changes in law and policy in some states and at the federal level are making transition-related health care more accessible to many transgender people. But deciphering what the laws mean can be confusing (leading to misinformation spreading through our communities) and overwhelming (leading some people to avoid even trying to get their care covered). In this webinar Transgender Law Center health experts Anand Kalra and Sasha Buchert explain how health insurance works, where & in what circumstances health insurance plans cover transition-related health care, and how to exercise your rights to appeal denials. Types of insurance discussed will include employer-based insurance, plans through state exchanges (“Obamacare”), Medicaid, and Medicare. Ideal for health care providers and community advocates.
