Your Health Care Stories Needed
Personal stories from trans and gender nonconforming people about their experiences within our health care system are a powerful tool in helping to bring about change to the system. Our organization has been asked to play a role in collecting these stories by the Mayo Clinic GLBTI employee group, which is advocating for positive reforms in services and standards of care for transgender people within the Mayo Clinic. We are especially interested in receiving accounts of our community's positive and negative experiences from Mayo Clinic, but welcome stories from other providers and networks within the health care system as well. Next month, the Mayo Clinic GLBTI group will present a proposal to the body that oversees all Mayo clinic sites in MN, FL, AZ.
Transgender/Queer AA-NA Meeting
There is a Transgender/Queer AA-NA Meeting at Preston Chiropractic Clinic (at  3249 Hennepin Ave S, Suite 75, Minneapolis, MN 55408) every Tuesday night from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. This is an open 12 step meeting where we have topics, read big book or NA book and then have discussion.
About Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a disease of the liver that is caused by the hepatitis C virus, or HCV. You can get hepatitis C if your blood comes into contact with blood from someone who already has the virus. ANYONE WHO IS TRANSGENDER and using or sharing injection hormones/steroids is at RISK for Hep C. So ALWAYS use clean needles! And please don’t share!

Hep C is diagnosed by a simple blood test. We provide Hep C testing for anyone who is at risk. Please contact us for more information.

Trainings Offered
Does your clinic need a transgender health training?  How about your front desk staff?  Your health care students? Our organization offers professional trainings on transgender basics and trans specific health concerns to health care professionals, clinic staff, and students in Minnesota. To inquire about training, contact us .  We will call you back or reply to your email within two business days.
Information About Minnesota State Health Care Plan Coverage
Prior to 2005, Minnesota public health insurance programs offered some coverage of gender reassignment surgeries. However, as of August 1, 2005, SRS is no longer covered in the three public health insurance programs:
· Medical Assistance (MA)
· General Assistance Medical Care (GAMC)
· MinnesotaCare 
Although health insurance through these programs does not currently cover surgery, transgender people can still apply for insurance and be covered under the qualifying plans. While surgeries are an important part of many people’s transitions, having access to health care and health insurance are important for everyone. If you are covered under these plans, you can still visit your doctor for check-ups and health concerns, and even receive hormone therapies.

For more information about Minnesota’s health insurance programs, please visit the Guide to Minnesota's Public Health Care Programs.

If you do not currently have health insurance, and think that you may qualify for one of these programs, please contact your county human services agency for more details. Each county offers one or more health plans to qualifying individuals.
