Colorado transgender woman, Ashlyn Trider, is currently working with TLDEF (Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund) to force Aetna Life Insurance Company to cover her sex reassignment surgery.
The deadline to enroll for healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act is coming up on February 15, 2015, and Out 2 Enroll is working to ensure that eligible LGBT people can access the coverage offered.
To help inform the LGBT community about new coverage options in the Affordable Care Act, the Center for American Progress, the Sellers Dorsey Foundation, and the Federal Agencies Project will announce the launch of a new campaign, called Out2Enroll.
This week, the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF) announced a victory in a case brought by a transgender woman, Beth Scott, against Aetna, her private insurance company. GLAAD congratulates Ms. Scott and thanks TLDEF for challenging policies that unfairly deny health care coverage to transgender people.
