Healthy SF to remove trans exclusions

Nearly two years after a complaint was filed charging that Healthy San Francisco, the city’s health insurance program for uninsured residents, is discriminatory because it excludes services for transgender people, city officials are in the process of rectifying the situation and including such services in the program.

Supervisor Scott Wiener and transgender leaders met with the Bay Area Reporter Monday, July 16 and said that city officials are expected to soon sign off on the changes that would allow sexual reassignment services, treatment, and surgery to be covered for transgender patients just as they are now for non-trans patients.
