Anti-Trans Health Care Discrimination Already Happens Here: Daniel’s Story
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has proposed a new regulation that would promote discrimination by health care providers against anyone they don’t want to treat — including trans patients.
Under these new guidelines, providers could pick and choose who gets health care and who doesn’t.
Of course, even though this regulation isn’t in place yet, we know that trans people are already experiencing discrimination in health care. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing stories of health care discrimination. These situations are already happening, and the federal government must not encourage them.
Whether or not you have a story of your own, let HHS hear your voice — submit your comments opposing the regulation by March 27.
