Transgender Wellness Benefits

I found a reference to this information on Donna Rose's Blog.

Oh my god! It says I am covered. I had heard that it was but had never seen it in print. Do I have the nerve to get it all done? I guess I am using 3 of those 5, already. It does not mention SRS/GRS, but I had heard it did.

The following 78 employers rated in the 2008 Corporate Equality Index indicated “Benefit offered, transgender treatment covered,” meaning treatment is not excluded for medically necessary treatment related to gender dysphoria or gender reassignment for each of the five categories of treatment.

  1. Counseling by a mental health professional (e.g.: gender dysphoria diagnosis)
  2. Pharmacy benefits (e.g.: hormone therapy)
  3. Medical visits (e.g.: to monitor the effects of hormone therapy and associated lab procedures)
  4. Medically necessary surgical procedures (e.g.: hysterectomy, as part of gender-reassignment)
  5. Short-term leave for surgical procedures
