The Department of Health Care Policy & Financing has scheduled a stakeholder meeting on November 9, 2015, to begin the Transgender Services Benefits Collaborative Process. The Benefits Collaborative Process is the Department’s formal, public, policy development process. The process is used to define benefits – what is covered and who can provide/receive covered services – in a manner that is transparent to, and inclusive of, all stakeholders, using evidence-based guidelines. This effort will review and refine current transgender services policy for adults and children and will result in the creation of a Transgender Services Benefit Coverage Standard.
