Massachussetts Medicaid: Gender-affirming care resources
New website and self-identification form designed to promote awareness of gender-diverse health care
In September 2021, MassHealth launched its Gender-Affirming Care for the MassHealth Members webpage. The page provides information and resources about MassHealth coverage for gender-affirming care and health care for members who are transgender and gender-diverse.
The webpage offers details about several important gender-affirming care topics, including:
Terms and concepts
Eligibility for care
Care covered by MassHealth
MassHealth is also collecting information from health care professionals who want to self-identify as providers of gender-affirming care. This form provides MassHealth with information to help members find health care professionals who provide gender-affirming care.
Using the information collected, MassHealth may create a publicly available MassHealth gender-affirming care provider directory on the gender-affirming care webpage. We encourage MassHealth providers to complete the form as soon as possible to make sure you are included in the directory.
