Advocating for Your Healthcare Needs

GLAD Transgender Rights Project Director Jennifer Levi and Community Engagement Coordinator Julián Cancino will be presenting at First Event, the premier transgender conference of the season.

Remarks will be focussed on recent legal changes and developments in the area of insurance coverage addressing both public plans (with a focus on Medicare and Medicaid) and private plans. They will also discuss recent changes resulting from the issuance in a number of states of insurance commissions bulletins addressing discriminatory gender transition-related care exclusions. The workshop will highlight recent changes in standards for changing gender markers on identity documents including in Massachusetts. Finally, the presentations will include updates on cutting edge legal developments challenging the exclusion of transgender people from the Americans with Disabilities Act.

To attend this session, you must register for the First Event conference, see info on registration below.
