Trans Health Insurance Forum a huge success

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

On January 17, Gender Justice League hosted a Trans Health Insurance Forum with the Coalition for Inclusive Healthcare at Calamus Auditorium inside Gay City Health project (517 E. Pike St.).

According to Executive Director of Gender Justice League, Danielle Askini, in a post on GenderJusticeLeague.org, the forum featured panelists and a presentation on coverage for transition related care in private insurance policies, for state employees, those with Medicare, and soon-to-be coverage in AppleCare - Washington's Medicaid program.

'The forum was heavily attended with over 100 people signed in and the panel took questions from the audience and shared resources,' said Askini.

Nearly all plans in Washington must now cover hormones, doctors' visits, therapy, and some surgeries.

The event preceded the January 20 LGBTQ Health Insurance at Calamus Auditorium at Gay City.

Gay City Health Project said, 'The open enrollment period to sign up for healthcare coverage through the Affordable Care Act is fast approaching, which means, if you have not yet signed up for healthcare, now's the time! This is also a great time to change your coverage, if needed, and Gay City wants to help.'

In-person assisters were available at the free event, to answer questions and help with the sign-up for or change of coverage. The in-person assisters were provided from Gay City, Lifelong AIDS Alliance, Gender Justice League, Ingersoll Gender Center, Entre Hermanos, and We Are 1.

The event also featured a short program on health insurance coverage for LGBTQ people from Gender Justice League's Executive Director Danielle Askini.
