Transgender Care

Planned Parenthood of South, East and Norht Florida offers hormone replacement therapy (HRT), either testosterone or estrogen, for transgender patients. We see HRT as an important service that really goes to the core of our mission. This service can be found at any of our health centers.

Our transgender hormone services include:

  • Transgender Female (MTF) Hormone Therapy including estrogen and spironolactone
  • Transgender Male (FTM) Hormone Therapy including testosterone

We may be able to start or continue hormone therapy and provide referrals for gender-qualified therapy and resources if needed. If you are on hormone therapy, you can utilize the health center for ongoing care and monitoring.

In order to receive transgender services you need to be over 18 and capable of providing consent. Contact us at 1-800-230-7526 for specific details and to make your appointment.

What to expect on your first visit:

  • In order to decrease the amount of time spent in the waiting room, please call 1-800-230-7526 to make an appointment first and request transgender services.
  • When you check in, let our staff know you are there for transgender services. Please provide your name and pronoun (he or she or they) at the time of check in. This way, when you are called back to meet with the clinician, your correct name and pronoun will be used.
  • When you are called back to meet with the clinician, please be honest about your medical history, sexuality and sexual practices. All services are confidential (except in cases of abuse), so being open with the clinician will ensure that you are receiving the best health care.
  • As a transgender patient seeking services, you may consult with one of our clinicians and receive a physical assessment and lab testing as appropriate for monitoring hormones and your transition.

At Planned Parenthood we want to make sure you have all the resources you need to live a healthy and strong life. You can find additional resources for transgender care and services through one of our coalition partners, Equality Florida here.

Call 1-800-230-7526 to make your appointment today.

Florida Laws and Regulations

The Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) rules ban Medicaid coverage for gender dysporia. This rule affects coverage for certian services.

The rule is as follows:

(a) Florida Medicaid does not cover the following services for the treatment of gender dysphoria:

1. Puberty blockers;

2. Hormones and hormone antagonists;

3. Sex reassignment surgeries; and

4. Any other procedures that alter primary or secondary sexual characteristics.

What does this mean for me?

I have Florida state Medicaid,  am I able to be seen?

Medicaid plans can no longer cover the gender dysphoria treatments listed above. Services not on this list such as your visit with a medical professional, blood testing, and counseling are all still covered. The Medicaid plans we accept are listed here.

Can I still continue care for my visits and lab work with my Medicaid plan?

As of now the proposed rule is only denying coverage for the mentioned treatments listed above.

If I don't have Medicaid, am I still able to be see?

Yes, this rule does not affect patients with private insurance or those paying out of pocket.

Am I able to pay out of pocket for my medications?

Yes, and during your visit your provider may provide you with additional resources to guide you and help you find coverage.
