Gender-Affirming Care

Important update on Gender-Affirming Hormone Therapy

Planned Parenthood of South, East and North Florida is now scheduling appointments for existing gender-affirming hormone therapy patients following the state’s adoption of new legally required informed consent forms. 

PPSENFL patients seeking GAHT care must schedule an in-person appointment at the nearest health center offering GAHT services. During this visit, your health care provider will explain any changes to comply with the new legislation and ensure the continuation of your care. Please call to schedule your appointment and inform us if you are out or running low on medication refills. 

Please note that due to the new law, which mandates that only physicians treat GAHT patients, we regretfully cannot accommodate new patients at this time. Given the limited appointment slots available, we are currently scheduling existing patients who require ongoing care.  

Help is Here

If you need additional resources to cope with these changes, PPSENFL offers individual counseling and support groups for transgender and nonbinary patients and their loved ones. To learn more call 561-472-9991 or click here.  

We understand you may have questions about how this impacts your care. Please review the FAQ.  

Can I still have my blood drawn for pending lab orders?

If you have a pending lab order, you can still have your blood drawn as planned. You will have to make an in-person appointment to review the results with a physician. 

Can I still receive care via telehealth? 

Yes and no. The new law requires that all patients sign the informed consent form in-person with a physician. Telehealth is allowed if a follow-up visit with the physician does not require any changes to dosage, medication, or treatment. All appointments requiring changes to therapy will require in-person visits.   

Can I get my prescription refilled without making an appointment?  

Please call us, and we will work quickly to renew your prescription for the same dosage and route. If your prescription was extended before the state's hormone therapy restrictions went into effect on May 17, please check your MyChart portal to view your active prescription. You can conveniently contact your pharmacy directly for refill requests. For all new prescriptions, you will need to make an in-person appointment.  

Are you taking new patients for gender-affirming hormone therapy?  

Currently, we are not taking new patients to ensure we are offering the highest quality of care to our established gender-affirming care patients. The new law's requirement of a physician at every gender-affirming care appointment severely limits access to care. We cannot schedule new patient appointments until PPSENFL ensures our current patients receive consistent care with the changes.
