Many insurance companies cover medically necessary procedures related to sex reassignment, the protocol most widely recognized as effective in the treatment of severe gender dysphoria. Some insurance carriers have administered or insured health plans which include such coverage for well over a decade. However, most of these insurance carriers only implement these policies when employers specifically negotiate for inclusive coverage or when such coverage is mandated under state law. Unfortunately some insurance carriers still retain discriminatory transgender-specific exclusions in boilerplate plans sold to some employers.

The last decade has seen an increasing awareness by many employers that these transgender-specific exclusions common in many health plans contradict their commitment to a diverse workforce and to nondiscrimination on the basis of gender identity. These employers have begun to eliminate such exclusions and to affirmatively provide coverage for transgender transition-related care.
