Paying for Trans Related Health Care
Trans-related health care is often covered by health insurance companies, but each company is different and patients must investigate their own specific health insurance plan to determine benefits and coverage. Prescription drug coverage is often handled separately from the medical health benefits and may be managed by a different company all together. Be sure to ask about prescription drug coverage, as well. Please note student health on campus will provide trans-related medical care for registered students regardless of the type of insurance coverage.
