Q. I’m a transgender minor who will be turning 18 in a few months and plans on scheduling an appointment as soon as relatively possible to start HRT. I do not have insurance and am wondering how much the cost of such a process is. Any information, pointers, ect?
A. The first step in starting HRT through Corner Health is to make an appointment to establish care. At that appointment you will get a physical exam and blood tests. After the first appointment, you schedule another appointment to discuss the hormone treatment options. After starting hormones there are follow up appointments every 3 months for the first year.
If you do not have insurance there is a sliding fee scale that is used to determine the cost of your appointments.
There is also someone at Corner who can assist you in signing up for insurance.
