|Text of OPM Carrier Letter for FEHB Program, Requiring Coverage of Transgender and Gender Transition Care (PDF)|
U.S. Office of Personnel Management [OPM]
June 25, 2015
"Effective January 1, 2016, no carrier participating in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program may have a general exclusion of services, drugs or supplies related to gender transition or 'sex transformations.' This letter clarifies OPM's earlier guidance recognizing the evolving professional consensus that treatment may be medically necessary to address a diagnosis of gender dysphoria."
