AMSA Joins Amicus Brief to Call for VA Support of Surgical Treatment for Transgender Veterans with Gender Dysphoria
"AMSA adamantly opposes treatment policies that discriminate against patients based on their sexual orientation and gender identity, or that inhibit their access to quality care. Health care for transgender people should be individualized, holistic, and comprehensive – including, but not limited to surgical treatment– and transgender persons in the military should be allowed to openly undergo gender transition and be eligible for the equitable benefits and rights afforded to cisgendered service personnel, including health care."
