CMS for the first time on Oct. 12 approved a state’s request to provide gender-affirming care as an essential health benefit (EHB) in the individual and small-group health insurance markets. Colorado’s new EHB-benchmark plan will offer transgender individuals access to a wider range of services than what is currently covered by their health plans, such as eye and lid modifications, face tightening, facial bone remodeling for facial feminization, breast/chest construction and reductions, and laser hair removal. Effective Jan. 1, 2023, Colorado is also adding EHBs in its benchmark plan to include mental wellness exams and expanded coverage for 14 prescription drug classes.
