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


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 HRC Foundation has led great change in employer-provided health insurance coverage for transgender people. Through the intensive educational and consultative efforts to address health care and insurance disparities for the transgender population and their families, including: outreach to leading health insurance companies direct consultation with both fully and self-insured employers to modify their health care plans and collection and dissemination of cost and utilization data from leading businesses, the HRC Foundation led an increase in the number of major U.S. employers affording transgender-inclusive health care coverage, from 49 in the 2009 CEI to 278 in the 2013 CEI and 340 in 2014.
