Vivent Health opposes Texas SB14 that would ban doctors from providing gender-affirming care to trans youth

Later this week, the Texas House of Representatives is scheduled to debate SB14, a dangerous bill that would ban doctors from providing gender-affirming care to trans youth and prevent health insurance plans from covering these services in the state. The data is overwhelmingly clear that this care is safe, evidence-based, and lifesaving. Legislation like SB14 is grounded in misinformation and prejudice, and they represent a larger effort by some to exclude trans people from society.
At Vivent Health we proudly believe that all people should have access to the care they need. We stand with trans Texans in opposing SB14 and strongly urge Texas legislators to reject this harmful bill.
