Transgender Health Care Services
The Mount Sinai Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) takes a team approach to health care for transgender and gender diversity 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 procedures
- Social work, spiritual care support, and complimentary legal assistance, if needed
- Behavioral health support
We provide care for transgender and gender diverse of all ages. Parents of younger children please reach out to CTMSInfo@mountsinai.org for special assistance. 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 transgender and gender diversity 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 you get authorizations for out-of-state plans.
