Paying for Medical Care

An important step is to determine the best health insurance coverage for your situation. The medical providers listed above—as well as LGBTQ support centers—may be able to direct you to the right health plan. Be sure to understand the details of what each health plan can offer you. For example, Amida Care’s health plan covers transgender care that includes hormone therapies, gender-affirming services, and access to HIV prevention methods including PrEP and PEP.
