Advancing Health Equity for LGBT Georgians

Georgians for a Healthy Future supports policies and practices that advance opportunities for optimal health for all Georgians. We are working together with Georgia Equality and The Health Initiative to help Georgians who have faced discrimination in health care report it so we can help stop it from happening again. Thanks to Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, LGBT Georgians, who experience unique challenges and barriers in obtaining health care coverage and accessing care, now have protections from discrimination in coverage and care. These protections are an important milestone in the movement towards health equity, marking the first time that sex discrimination in health care is prohibited.

If you believe you have been discriminated against, you can file a complaint online with the Office for Civil Rights. Please also tell us about your experience so we can help you navigate the complaint process and identify systemic issues that should be addressed through public policy advocacy.
