Today, New York Governor Cuomo announced that private insurance plans are no longer allowed to deny healthcare to transgender people. New York is now the ninth state to make this change. This incredible change will have a huge impact on all New Yorkers.
SRLP is honored to be a part of this amazing work, as we fight for these same protections for low-income people covered by Medicaid.
