It just got easier and more affordable for some trans and non-binary residents to get gender-affirming healthcare in Massachusetts, thanks to changes by MassHealth.

Effective September 1, MassHealth issued updates to what's considered "medically necessary," in gender-affirming healthcare.

We talk about what these changes mean for trans and non-binary communities with Dallas Ducar, a nurse practitioner and CEO of the organization Transhealth Northampton, which provides physical and mental health services to trans, non-binary, and gender diverse children and adults.

This segment aired on September 16, 2021.
