ACTION NEEDED!! New York, Stop excluding trans and gender non conforming people from receiving safe and affordable healthcare!

As a transgender woman working in New York City, I’ve never had healthcare coverage that met my basic needs. I’ve had to pay most of my medical expenses out of pocket because most health insurance policies and programs, including New York State Medicaid, specifically exclude transgender people like me from accessing care. This doesn’t have to be the case for other trans and gender non-conforming New Yorkers, especially those who are low-income and qualify for Medicaid.
