In order to qualify, you should be ready to submit:

Despite these disappointing realities, thankfully there are insurance companies that DO cover treatments for transgender patients, briefly listed below, followed by a list of surgeries they typically approve (with documentation).

A letter from your primary care physician documentation any facts about your transition

A letter from a qualified mental health professional testifying to your “gender dysphoria”

Additional documents related to transitioning such as court documents etc.

With the exception of top surgery, most of the treatments our team performs are considered cosmetic, unfortunately. However, we are completely willing to submit claims on your behalf and create a paper trail documenting your surgical plan. Additionally, there are many credit resources available to help finance your aesthetic journey. Dr. Liu and his team will do everything they can to assist you with the paperwork so that you can move forward with your procedure – and your life. Please visit our page on Financing to learn more, or speak with our patient coordinator.
