  • Care Coordination: At the UCLA Gender Health Program, we understand the unique challenges that gender expansive patients face when accessing health care. Providing personalized care often involves collaboration between specialty physicians, and you may not always be certain what step to take next.

We offer a variety of services to support our gender expansive patients, specifically including: 
    • Providing information about UCLA’s Gender Health Program.
    • Taking an initial intake assessment of each person's health care needs and goals to share with their Gender Health Program providers.
    • Support establishing with one of our primary care providers. 
    • Coordinating referrals for gender-affirming surgeries.
    • Identifying appropriate providers and coordinating referrals for other supportive services.
    • Coordinating insurance and benefits coverage.
