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.

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.
