Following Professional Care Standards

Every dollar helps advance transgender health research and provide patients with opportunities and support throughout their journey.


Our surgical providers at the University of Utah work together with other specialties in the Transgender Health Program to provide a coordinated, safe approach to medical and surgical care. All of our providers follow the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) Standards of Care.

Insurance Coverage

The University of Utah Health Transgender Program is not able to recommend insurers or insurance plans, as there is much variation from insurer to insurer and plan to plan. If you have questions about your insurance coverage for gender affirming medical care, please contact your insurance company directly.

After consultating with your surgical provider, if you are a candidate for surgery, we will work with you to find if the procedure is covered. If surgery is not covered by your plan, we will provide you with an out-of-pocket estimate.

If our providers are not in-network, ask your insurance company if you would qualify for a gap exception. A gap exception can sometimes be granted as a covered service if there are no other in-network providers in the area that offer that service.

Check with our insurance information to verify whether University of Utah Health is in your network of coverage.

Please note that we are actively working with all of the payers in Utah to advocate for medically necessary care as a covered benefit. 

As our program continues to grow and develop, we expect to provide more services in the near future.
