FL AHCA Public Hearing: Defend Trans+ Healthcare
Gov. Ron DeSantis is pushing a new rule that would deny over 9,000 trans+ Floridians on Medicaid the gender affirming care they desperately need. Join us as we tell FL Agency on Health Care Administration to STOP Rule 59G-1.050 the FL Medicaid Trans+ Medical Care Ban
Time & Location
Jul 08, 2022, 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Tallahassee, 605 Suwannee St, Tallahassee, FL 32399, USA
About the Event
This rule rejects transition care for transgender people on Medicaid, making Florida the 11th state to have explicit exclusions against gender-affirming care in Medicaid programs. This is despite federal court precedents that such exclusions are violations of non-discrimination protections for medical care and health insurance coverage for people of all gender identities found in the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid Act.
Join us as we gather together at the Department of Transportation for the Public Hearing to defend transgender medical and low-income Medicaid recipient access to gender affirming care. Please come early 2:30 pm EDT and register early.
