GLMA Supports the California TGI Inclusive Care Act

GLMA is proud to support California SB 923, the TGI Inclusive Care Act, which would significantly improve access to comprehensive and gender affirming care for transgender, gender non-conforming, and/or intersex (TGI) people in California.  On the first day of Pride Month, we submitted a letter of support for CA SB 923 to the California Assembly Health Committee. This first-of-its-kind bill would require health plans to require TGI cultural competency training for contracted providers, their staff, and the staff of health plans. It would also ensure that plan provider directories identify providers who offer gender affirming services. Healthcare discrimination and a lack of access to culturally competent care is a hurdle that TGI people should not have to face. Click here to read the letter of support.
