Colorado insurance to cover gender-affirming laser hair removal
Experiencing the state of Colorado is unique for the best reasons.
The breathtaking scenery. The fresh air. The mountains. The beautiful weather. Colorado provides residents and travelers with the best vibes!
And now, thanks to a recent ruling by state and federal officials, Colorado will positively impact the lives of many in a new way!
Colorado state and federal officials announced that the state will include gender-affirming care in individual and small group health insurance plans! This means necessary services like laser hair removal will be covered, making the service more easily and financially accessible for those who previously may not have been able to afford the life-altering and gender-affirming service.
Colorado’s plan will feature a number of life-changing services. Laser hair removal, along with jaw, cheek and eye modifications, face tightening, facial bone remodeling for facial feminization and breast or chest constructions and reductions.
And it goes beyond covering physical changes. Additional benefits include mental health exams, expanded coverage for opioid alternatives for pain management with 15 drug alternatives and up to six acupuncturist visits!
An ABC News article highlighted the decision in more detail. The move will take effect in January 2023 and comes with significant positive changes.
