The Mount Sinai Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) takes a team approach to caring for trans and gender non-binary people. All our patients have access to many health care professionals. Services include the following:
- Primary care, hormone therapy, and specialty care (such as endocrinology, gynecology, and urology)
- Surgical care
- Social work and complimentary legal support, if needed
- Behavioral health support
The Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) at Mount Sinai and the Adolescent Health Center work together to provide care for transgender and gender non-binary youth. Our providers treat trans and non-binary people ages 18 and older at 275 7th Avenue in Chelsea. The Adolescent Health Center treats trans and non-binary young people (between the ages of 10 and 18) at 312 East 94th Street on the Upper East Side. Our adolescent program includes primary care, endocrine therapy, counseling, and family support.
Insurance and Access
Everyone should have access to medically necessary care. This is not always the case for trans and gender non-binary individuals. At Mount Sinai, we can help you access health insurance and obtain any approvals you may need. This can include both hormone treatment and surgical intervention. CTMS accepts most major commercial and New York State Medicaid plans. We are happy to help get authorizations for out-of-state plans.
