Execs Explain How Plans Can Better Serve LGBTQ+ Members

In June, when the Supreme Court ruled in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia that transgender people are protected by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in matters of employment, it was just the latest of a decade-long wave of legal and political victories for the LGBTQ+ movement.

Those changes in the law have only begun to play out in the health care industry, which has a fraught history with LGBTQ+ patients. Experts say health plans must address a legacy of discrimination in collaboration with LGBTQ+ community groups in order to better serve this population.
