Transgender Services


Services Provided.

      • Referral for consultation and treatment for:
          1. All Veterans that are transgender or considering/contemplating whether they are a different gender than that at birth.
          2. Intersex Veterans who were born with ambiguous sex and may or may not have had surgery as a child to change this.
          3. Though VHA Directive 2013-003 requires we provide comprehensive medical and mental health care for Transgender and Intersex Veterans, THE VA DOES NOT PROVIDE OR COVER SEX REASSIGNMENT SURGERY (SRS) OR ELECTROLYSIS but does cover pre-operative and post-operative care
