In recent years, the federal government and a handful of state insurance commissioners have taken steps to prohibit discrimination, including transgender exclusions, in private health insurance. Though these developments have been widely celebrated within the community, few trans people are actually reaping the benefits. Join attorneys Jillian Weiss and Ezra Young as they examine the evolving landscape of private transgender health insurance coverage in the United States. 


Learning Objectives:

I.    Recognize transgender health care needs 

II.   Understand the evolving landscape of trans insurance protections at the state and federal level 

III.  Identify key strategies for addressing trans-specific exclusions in private insurance
