ALERT: Protect Healthcare Access for Transgender People

ALERT: Protect Healthcare Access for Transgender People

Time Range For Action Alert: 
August 5, 2019 to August 13, 2019

The LWVUS position on Health Care is: “Promote a health care system for the U.S. that provides affordable access to a basic level of quality care for all U.S. residents, including behavioral health that is integrated with and achieves parity with the physical health care system.” It has come to our attention that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services plans to pass a regulation to block coverage for transgender individuals under the Affordable Care Act. It is crucial that we do something before Monday, August 12th.
