Gender Affirming FAQ
Gender Affirming FAQ
What happens after I register for the patient portal for the first time?
Don’t worry one of our registrars will message you back through the portal shortly to inquire about what services you are looking for. Click here for full details and how to start/sign up for services.
How do I know if Mazzoni Center accepts my insurance?
Insurance can be tricky, and coverage varies by plan. It’s best to contact our front desk staff with questions or contact your insurance provider (Insurance service numbers can be found on the back of your insurance card).
I don’t have insurance. Can I still receive services?
Yes – our care navigation team can assist you with applying for coverage. We offer a sliding scale for those without insurance or whose insurance does not cover certain services. This will be discussed during patient registration. If your insurance changes, please contact our front desk as soon as possible with new information.
