Insurance Coverage for FFS in Orange County?
« on: March 09, 2021, 09:58:44 am »
Hello everyone!

My name is Selene. I am early in my medical transition, but I have been socially transitioned for 3 years.
I live in Orange County, and I'm not having the easiest time figuring out what insurance covers what or which doctors.

Thanks so much!

Insurance coverage for FFS isn't common. I've heard Kaiser may cover it. Are you going to self purchase a plan?

No matter which county you live in, the most important thing to look at is the insurance plan you have. These plans vary from state to state and insurance company to company.

If you are from California (we have an Orange county in Florida as well) the Kaiser insurance plan is available for you and is reputed to be the most inclusive of all health insurance plans for transgender surgeries. The only way to be sure is to read what is covered in your policy and call your insurance company for pre-approval before you do anything else.
