Gender-Affirming Benefits: Best Practices for Group Health Plans

McDermott Will & Emery LLP

Feb. 29, 2024
1:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. ET

Employers and plan sponsors are facing growing – and often conflicting – pressures related to the coverage of gender-affirming care. Join McDermott lawyers Sarah G. Raaii and Alden J. Bianchi for a webinar to review recent legal developments in the shifting landscape of transgender benefits and best practices that group health plans should keep in mind as they evaluate how to cover transgender care.

Our program will report on the current state of the law, both state and federal, as it applies to self-funded and fully insured arrangements alike. It will also include a review of the emerging case law and legislative efforts to both protect and ban access to gender reassignment surgery for minors.

Discussion topics include:

  • Applicable requirements for health plans under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and the Affordable Care Act
  • State laws banning or limiting gender reassignment surgery, including bans on travel across state lines
  • Federal regulator efforts to expand access to coverage
  • The role of third-party administrators and standard-setting organizations
  • Fiduciary best practices for handling transgender care claims
