Banner that reads Gender affirming care is life-saving healthcare with blue pink and white diaganolly across the background.

Whether you are transgender, non-binary, intersex, or somewhere else along the gender spectrum, your providers should understand that you know yourself best.  Learn about the options you have as you interact with the systems and providers involved in gender-affirming care, provided by CareOregon.

Please note: We use medical terminology for clarity and ease of access when it comes to exploring gender-affirming surgery. We understand that you may not identify or feel comfortable using some of these terms to describe your experience and body.

What is gender-affirming care?

Most broadly stated, gender-affirming care is care that respects and validates a transgender, non-binary, or intersex person’s experience. In terms of accessing transition-related treatment, gender-affirming care refers to interventions that support people in their gender transition.

What are the steps to accessing services?

1. Start with your primary care and mental health providers

They can help you with most everything from your initial gender dysphoria diagnosis to accessing hormone treatment and/or surgeries. In some cases, it is necessary to have a referral from a primary care provider and a mental health provider in order to schedule a consult for surgery. You can search for providers from the lists above or by calling Customer Service.

2. Familiarize yourself with medical interventions and what feels best for you

There are a variety of options available when it comes to hormonal and surgical interventions. Some surgeons in our network perform different surgeries and have different techniques they use for each. We recommend contacting a surgeon’s office to review surgery types, recovery timelines, considerations and risks, along with any other questions you may have. Please note that hormonal and surgical intervention for people under 18 is limited and additional screening may be required.

3. Determine if getting a diagnosis of what has come to be called gender dysphoria is appropriate or needed to access the care you want and if so, get it in writing

Be sure your gender dysphoria evaluation is from a mental health provider qualified to diagnose gender dysphoria. Clinicians with a minimum of a Master’s degree are eligible to write letters diagnosing patients with gender dysphoria for the Oregon Health Plan. These letters must be completed by a licensed clinician or an unlicensed clinician with a licensed clinical supervisor’s signature. These letters may be referred to as “assessment letters” or “letters of support” and are necessary for accessing surgery and, in some cases, changing your gender marker on identity documentation (e.g., birth certificate, state ID, etc.). Bottom surgeries require two assessment letters.

If you need help with accessing services, or if you want to talk to someone about the services CareOregon provides, call Customer Service at 503-416-4100, toll-free 800-224-4840 or TTY 711.

Additional CareOregon resources

CareOregon supports transition needs outside of medical interventions. Members and their care providers can request health-related services funds (HRSF) for items or services that aren’t covered under standard Oregon Health Plan services, but will improve a person’s health. HRS must be consistent with a member’s treatment plan, as developed by their primary care team or other treatment providers.

Some examples of items that can fall under HRSF are:

  • gender affirming clothing
  • binders
  • prosthetics
  • costs related to name changes
  • gender marker changes
  • identity documentation
  • and more

For more information, please visit our health-related services webpage.
