What is an LGBTQ+ Primary Care Provider?
An LGBTQ+ Primary Care provider is a medical ally that can help you with any changes your body is experiencing. They are compassionate and experienced in offering care to LGBTQ+ patients. Specifically, they are able to manage hormones, help with pre and after-surgery care, and offer health screenings.
At Your Appointment
Intake forms often don’t give the full story. This is a wonderful opportunity to talk about personal topics related to your health. Based on this comprehensive information gathered during the visit, along with your health history, your provider can make better recommendations.
A wellness exam may include a physical exam. Remember that if you are uncomfortable with any part of the exam you should feel comfortable saying so.
After your visit
Your provider will discuss aspects of your health that need follow up. You may also have topics you want to discuss further, such as gender-affirming surgery and hormones. At this point, Jill may suggest a follow-up appointment or refer you to a specialist.
Our billing team can work with you to advocate with your insurance company. Some, insurance companies may question a bill when the name or gender in their records doesn’t match what’s in the records from your office visit, or when a patient is listed as male bills for a typically female service. If you have contacted your insurance and need assistance, we can reach out on your behalf to confirm services and/or re-bill if necessary with the goal of having your services covered for payment according to your plan.
