Insurance companies to stop considering transgender surgery as cosmetic surgery

This petition had 53 supporters


Transgender struggle daily with getting their medical needs met. I've experienced delays in my hormone replacement medication due to prior authorization issues despite having been on the medication for months. Surgeries to complete transformation are often considered cosmetic surgery by insurance companies despite proper documentation from doctors. Suicede rates among the transgender community are just as high as the murder rate in the LGBT community. Intolerance and prejudice from insurance companies and medical providers leave festering wounds that no cosmetic surgery could ever repair. Together let's repair laws, guidelines, and the criteria these companies operate under.
