Reporting Medical Provider Discrimination
No one should have to experience discrimination when seeking health care. If you've experienced harassment or discrimination because you are transgender or nonbinary—such as misgendering, refusal to use your chosen name, or not being housed according to your affirmed gender—you can take action.
Local, state, and federal laws generally prohibit discrimination in places such as hospitals, doctor or dentist offices, and drug-treatment facilities. Licensing boards also have standards of conduct that prohibit providers from discriminating or behaving unprofessionally.
Reporting discrimination is important not only to help yourself, but it also helps to ensure that it doesn't happen to anyone else in the future. Below are state-specific places to report discrimination. Use "Other" if your state is not yet listed.
