Information About Minnesota State Health Care Plan Coverage
Prior to 2005, Minnesota public health insurance programs offered some coverage of gender reassignment surgeries. However, as of August 1, 2005, SRS is no longer covered in the three public health insurance programs:
· Medical Assistance (MA)
· General Assistance Medical Care (GAMC)
Although health insurance through these programs does not currently
cover surgery, transgender people can still apply for insurance and be
covered under the qualifying plans. While surgeries are an important
part of many people’s transitions, having access to health care and
health insurance are important for everyone. If you are covered under
these plans, you can still visit your doctor for check-ups and health
concerns, and even receive hormone therapies.
If you do not currently have health insurance, and think that you may
qualify for one of these programs, please contact your county human
services agency for more details. Each county offers one or more health
plans to qualifying individuals.
