January 6, 2016

We hope you had a wonderful holiday break and are looking forward to an exciting new year. 2015 was a great year for the GIC and we couldn’t have done it without all of your support! Highlights from the past year include:
* Electing a new Board of Trustees
* Doubling participation in our annual Colorado Gives Day fundraiser
* Helping to kill anti-trans and right to discriminate bills in state legislation
* Adding multiple new support groups to our weekly schedule
* Coming together for a moving Transgender Day of Remembrance ceremony
* Celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas with our wonderful community

We plan to accomplish even more in 2016, as we begin our 38th year serving the Colorado community! But, it all depends on our volunteers who make this organization the powerhouse it is. Won’t you join us this year? We are always looking for open-minded individuals to contribute to the greater good. Visit our website to join our team.

The Gender Identity Center of Colorado is hosting Colorado Access, Medicaid’s Accountable Care Collaborative Program (ACC) once a month on the 1st Monday of the month from 1pm to 3pm. You can come in to our office and get all the services they offer from one of their knowledgeable Care Managers. To find out more about the services they offer, go to https://www.healthcolorado.org/

HealthColorado is a state program that helps people in Medicaid choose the health plan they want to get Medicaid services through. The ACC program is offered to assist those with Medicaid access the services they need and coordinate different types of care such as medical, behavioral health, dental, vison, etc. If you have Medicaid, but have been having difficulty getting the services you need, come on by and talk to a Care Manager.

It’s important to know that from now until January 31st, 2016, Coloradans can shop for health insurance on our state’s own marketplace, Connect for Health Colorado.

Still, if you’re a transgender Coloradan, finding coverage that meets all your health care needs can be complicated. That’s why today, One Colorado is releasing our Transgender Health Insurance Buyer’s Guide — so that transgender people across our state can see which insurance companies provide complete coverage for transgender Coloradans.

We’ve developed this helpful guide for transgender Coloradans so that their shopping experience for health coverage is less confusing and burdensome. The insurance companies under the green smiley face provide complete coverage for transgender Coloradans; the companies under the yellow neutral face have partial coverage; and the companies under the red frowny face have inadequate coverage.

It’s also important to know how accessible Colorado insurance companies make information regarding services provided for transgender consumers, so we’ve rated that as well. The insurance companies under the green smiley make information easily accessible; the companies under the red frowny face do not.

Our buyer’s guide is meant to be a useful step in making sure transgender Coloradans can access the care they need, but we can’t promise that everything will be covered by any insurance plan. Make sure you check with your provider before changing plans.

If you are denied care, you may still have to appeal that decision with any insurance company on this list — but the One Colorado team can assist you there, too! If you think you’ve been denied coverage because you’retransgender, contact our Deputy Director, Daniel Ramos, by emailing danielr@one-colorado.org.
