Massachussetts Medicaid: Gender-affirming care resources
New website and self-identification form designed to promote awareness of gender-diverse health care
Last updated: Nov. 17, 2022
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.
If you are an active MassHealth provider who provides gender-affirming care and would like to self-identify as such, please fill out the self-identification form. While you may fill out the form at any time, it would be helpful if you can do so by Nov. 15, 2022.
If you are a MassHealth provider who had previously self-identified as a MassHealth provider of gender-affirming care, but would like to be removed from this gender-affirming care provider directory before the initial posting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “gender-affirming care provider form removal,” by Nov. 15, 2022.
