Important update on Missouri SB 49

We understand this is a confusing and scary time for transgender youth and their loved ones. You can rely on us for accurate info and updates so that you can make informed decisions about your health care.

Missouri SB 49 goes into effect on August 28. Here is what you can expect as a patient:

We will continue to see minors (age 16+) in Missouri for gender-affirming care, as long as they begin care before August 28, 2023. Patients who have begun care before August 28 can continue their care in Missouri. After August 28, Missouri minors looking to start gender-affirming care can come to our health center in Fairview Heights, Illinois. For support getting to your appointment in Illinois, call the Regional Logistics Center at 618-607-5080.
