White House Restores Health Care Protections For Gay And Transgender People

The Biden administration says it will protect gay and transgender people from discrimination in health care. Monday’s announcement cited a 2020 Supreme Court decision that LGBTQ persons were protected by federal laws that forbid sex discrimination in the workplace – a ruling the previous administration argued didn’t apply to health care.

Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becarra said “Everyone — including LGBTQ people — should be able to access health care, free from discrimination or interference, period.”
