Florida Medicaid Trans
Medical Care Ban
Healthcare for transgender and gender non-conforming people should be individualized, holistic, and comprehensive - including, but not limited to surgical treatment. Transgender persons should be allowed to openly undergo gender transition and be eligible for equitable Medicaid benefits and rights afforded to cisgender Medicaid patients and recipients

On Friday, June 17th the Florida Agency on Health Care Administration (ACHA) published a "Notice of Proposed Rule 59G - 1.050" which denies life-saving, science-based gender affirming care to over 9,000 transgender and/or gender non-conforming Medicaid recipients in Florida. This rule is a direct response to a DeSantis Administrative hateful plot to gain votes by killing and torturing transgender people and part of his overall effort to wipe transgender people from existence in Florida. Show him that his discriminatory tactics won't work.
Please take a moment today and send an email by clicking "send an email" below. We only have until July 8th to make a difference. The public hearing on the rule is set for July 8th and we need your support to make as much noise as possible.
