Check this list for the Planned Parenthood Health Centers around the country that offer Trans Health Care. Planned Parenthood also has some great educational programs related to gender identities, check the previous link or your local Planned Parenthood Health Center.
Even more importantly, did you know that Planned Parenthood offers many services, even HRT via telehealth? This means that if you are not physically close to a Planned Parenthood Health Center that offers Hormone Replacement Therapy in your state that has a Telehealth program, you don’t have to travel to a physical site to get HRT. If the center provides HRT via telehealth, typically a presciption for your hormones can be sent to you and fullfilled at a nearby pharmacy.
Planned Parenthood Health Centers are also great places to get to know because they provide many other important services. These services include sexual and reproductive health, screenings and treatments for HIV and STD’s, men’s and women’s health care, primary and preventative health care and often also many routine medical screenings for a variety of conditions. Planned Parenthood Health Centers accept many insurance programs as well as medicare, medicaid, and some can also help you identify an affordable insurance program or help you understand if you qualify for programs to help pay for medical care.
