    I’m definitely new here, I’m writing because I’m trying to get health coverage in New York, for my gender-affirming surgeries. I’m definitely lost I’ve done hours of research I feel kinda stuck I’m going to have to keep my head up in this. I’m also trying to find a way to pay for my (current) laser hair removal. If anyone has any ideas or insight I’d definitely appreciate it.

      Hi Freya, it’s good if your serious , this is in fact serious business – I’ve done it all except facial surgery M to F – I’m Canadian but I know that the American medical system and the doctors love American insurance , self pay may be around 30k US but the doctors charge the American Insurance company 120k for the same surgery doing a SRS – you only get one chance and after then your considered a ” Revision ” patient – I’m 2 1/2 years post op surgery from the Kamol Hospital in Bangkok and it could be said I didn’t dilate properly which is hogwash and of course I’m supposed to screw around with a Pelvic Floor therapy therapist and in reality what I want and know what I really need is a new vaginal canal and stop screwing around and just give me a new re-surgery like PPT and would solve aesthetically and my functional needs 100 % – once a person is post op basically the good doctors with true artistic skills won’t touch a person fixing another doctors post op surgery – I have a tough personality and I don’t beg and cry despite complete estrogen switch over – to get the good doctors pre surgery having a clean slate to work on is imperative – the one doctor if he would have considered me and I would jump on his table refused me outright because of my personality was Dr. Min Jun and also Wittenberg/Bonnington and I didn’t think Bonnington had enough experience went against me big time after actually being considered with a price quote etc. – The point is they don’t like knowledgable patients so you can’t say much , you have to let them feel they are the ” Hero’s ” to change your life through surgery – I’ve had a rough go with all this sh#t and have traveled the world everywhere to be me – I thought I did well choosing Kamol ” it was a mistake ” despite his reputation as one of the best but he doesn’t always do the full surgery as I found out and I have a mess to fix and my results do not even come close to his website images they show – Transitioning is very serious business , take your time and be you seeking out any surgery – XO – Krystal G , BC , Canada

      Freya:

      New York City or New York State? If you are in, or close to, the City, I suggest getting in touch with: https://gaycenter.org/ They should be able to help you navigate the system. If you are somewhere else, I suggest doing a search to find the closest LGBT resources to where you are. One of the few positive things that has resulted from the pandemic is that counseling services, both therapeutic and health care navigation, are often available via ZOOM or other telecommunication software. Distance is less of an issue these days.
