What should I expect during a hormone therapy appointment?
During a hormone therapy appointment, your provider will discuss methods of transitioning. Together, you’ll review risks and benefits of different courses of action, changes that are reversible and which are irreversible, expectations, lifestyle changes, and what to expect at future physical exams.
Your provider can review resources in the community, support systems, referrals for surgery, and prescribe and renew prescriptions. If you are undergoing hormone therapy, your provider may recommend blood tests to assess hormone levels and your body’s reaction to the medication. If you don’t live near Bridgercare, your provider may ask you to have your blood drawn at your local lab.
What about cost and insurance?
Services are provided on a sliding fee scale, meaning fees are based on your household’s income and size. The sliding fee scale applies regardless of whether you have insurance – speaking of which, we accept patients with or without insurance or Medicaid! We can also assist you in determining your options for insurance and applying for Medicaid. For remaining balances, we offer payment plans and will work with you to make sure your healthcare is affordable and accessible. Please call if you have questions about cost, we would love discuss options with you!
