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

Self-identification form

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.

Questions?

If you have questions about the gender-affirming care provider self-identification form, email physicianservices@mass.gov with the subject line “gender-affirming care provider form."
