FAQ

1. Are there things I have to do in order to begin hormone therapy?

Yes. A complete medical history and physical exam is needed, in addition to baseline blood/lab work.

2. I haven’t changed my name yet or been evaluated by a counselor. Can I still move forward with transitioning?

The Emma Goldman Clinic’s protocols are based on an Informed Consent standard. Past experience with identity is discussed with the practitioner, but living as the desired gender is not needed to begin hormones.

3. Will my insurance cover any of the costs?

If your insurance ordinarily covers routine and wellness screening exams and labs, they may cover at the usual amount. Individual policies vary and we are happy to help determine coverage.
