Webinar: How the Affordable Care Act Helps Transgender
and Gender Non-Conforming Patients
On Wednesday, October 14, the federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) hosted Transgender Law Center’s Health Programs Manager Anand Kalra for a webinar on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its implications for transgender people.
Intended for healthcare providers, public health officials, and community advocates, the webinar looked at issues of both access and implementation. Anand focused on how the ACA has improved access to health care for transgender and gender non-conforming patients, while representatives from the Howard Brown Health Center examined on-the-ground impact and navigating insurance coverage.
