"As with private insurance, transgender people sometimes encounter confusion about what is covered or barriers to accessing coverage - both for transition-related care and routine preventative care. This document provides an overview of benefit questions that may arise for transgender people and information on what to do in response to an initial denial of coverage."

This fact sheet outlines the coverage now provided to transgender people under Medicare, as of May 2014. It also clarifies any confusion a transgender individual may have regarding what is covered. In addition, it delineates potential difficulties a transgender individual may face in light of coverage and how to overcome these difficulties.
