To refer a patient for any transgender specific care or services, or if you require assistance understanding what is available, or if you would like our Transgender Care Navigator to contact the patient directly, please place a referral in ApEX to "Transgender Care Navigation" (REF450).  The Navigator will review your request, and when relevant the patient's insurance status, and either handle the request directly, or respond to you with further instructions and information.

Please note that you should search under the "facility list" tab to be sure the referral appears in ApEX.
