Corporate Equality Index: List of Businesses with Transgender-Inclusive Health Insurance Benefits

12/8/2011

This page is part of a set of resources for employers to implement transgender-inclusive health insurance coverage. See "Benefits for Transgender Employees and Dependents" for the complete set of resources.

Since 2004, the HRC Foundation has asked employers whether they offer transgender health benefits without exclusion as part of its annual Corporate Equality Index survey. Businesses large and small have removed transgender exclusions from their health insurance contracts and modified clinical guidelines to provide health insurance coverage for mental health counseling, hormone therapy, medical visits, surgical procedures and other treatments related to gender transition or sex reassignment.

The Corporate Equality Index requires employers to provide documentation indicating that such coverage is indeed available. In total, 206 employers — including 11 of the top 20 Fortune 500 companies and 56 of the American Lawyer top 200 law firms — demonstrated that they provided insurance coverage for transgender-related treatments, including surgical procedures, for employees and their covered dependents. In the 2011 CEI, only 85 employers afforded this level of coverage.

Where the HRC Foundation has seen detailed documentation of coverage, it has generally been limited to specific procedures or treatments; such limitations could eventually be viewed as insufficient. 

Employers rated in the Corporate Equality Index 2012 that provide insurance coverage for transgender-related treatments, including surgical procedures, for employees and their covered dependents:
