Appeals Court Rules State Insurance Must Cover Transgender Health Care: Shots

Cases involving transgender individuals and their rights have been making their way through the court system, with recent victories for transgender advocates. The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of providing coverage for gender-affirming care in North Carolina and West Virginia, a decision that was celebrated by supporters. Despite arguments for saving taxpayer money, the court deemed these denials as discriminatory. While some states plan to challenge the ruling, the decision sets an important precedent for other states. The Biden administration has also issued a regulation to strengthen protections against discrimination for transgender patients nationwide.
