Map: State Health Insurance Rules

May 13, 2016

This map shows which states have explicitly prohibited private health insurance plans sold in the state from having exclusions for transition-related care and which states have clarified that the state Medicaid program covers transition-related care. Even in states not listed here, transgender exclusions in private or Medicaid plans may violate the Affordable Care Act and other federal and state laws. There are now federal health care rules protecting transgender consumers nationwide. Individuals who are denied medically necessary transition-related care in any state may complain to their health plan, to state enforcement agencies, or to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
