City to offer benefits for transgender employees

Rochester, N.Y. - The City of Rochester will extend transition-related healthcare coverage to its employees who are transgender and gender non-conforming.

Mayor Lovely Warren made the announcement at the Empire State Pride Agenda's Spring Dinner at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center Saturday.

Approved by the City's Labor Management Healthcare Committee in April, the new coverage will pay for services related to gender reassignment surgery such as medical and psychological counseling, hormone therapy and cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries.

The benefits will go into effect beginning January 1, 2015, where the City of Rochester will then add transgender healthcare benefits for employees and their family members who are enrolled in the City's 'enhanced' medical plan.
