Gender Dysphoria – Disability Claim
Gender dysphoria is the condition of feeling one’s emotional and psychological identity as male or female to be opposite to one’s biological sex. People with gender dysphoria feel strongly that their body does not match their true gender, which can cause severe distress, anxiety and depression. Many health plans still deny coverage to transgender people by using exclusions such as “services related to sex change” or “sex reassignment surgery”.
To be diagnosed with gender dysphoria, a person has to have symptoms that last for at least six months. People with gender dysphoria have higher rates of mental health conditions, so therapy is part of any treatment for this condition. Outside of therapy, many people try to take steps to make their outward appearance match their gender identity. Some of these treatments include puberty blockers, hormone treatment or surgery.
