BCBSNC is covering surgery this year.  Most of their plans anyways, from what I hear.  I know that the State Employee's Health Plan (which is with BCBSNC) is covering it.  I'm scheduled for this summer!

This might be helpful for billing codes and general GCS coverage information. It's the link to the Aetna BCBS insurance guidelines for Sex Reassignment Surgery. Your company would still need to add this coverage specifically to the policy for coverage if you have Anthem BCBS so you would need to check on those details.

It's current and valid for 2017. At least in Indiana. Verified it myself.  ;D

Seriously, I'm just winging it like everyone else. Sometimes it works, other times -- not so much. HRT 2003 - FFS|Orch 2005 - GCS 2017 - No Regrets EVER!

I'm a bit confused on how the 55970 and 55980 are applicable to individuals who are transgender but not intersex. Are insurance companies treating them as the same diagnosis?
