Equal Access To Health Care

Since the Fall of 2013, CampusCare, the UIC student health insurance plan, includes gender-affirming surgeries. UI Health is one of the few centers in the Chicago area where complete sex reassignment is available. They offer the full spectrum of gender affirmation procedures.
