Trans Healthcare

Primary Care's services are available to all students of all gender identities and expressions. Students who are considering any kind of gender transition that may involve medical care are encouraged to make an appointment at Primary Care to discuss potential next steps and resources. PCHS maintains a comprehensive list of referral resources for trans health care in regard to transitioning in NYC, and will work with students to find appropriate resources.


Barnard College's student health insurance, through Aetna Student Health, covers both hormonal and surgical transgender healthcare. Any student who has already begun receiving hormone therapy outside of New York may also be given referrals to the resources available in NYC. Student who are self administering injections may receive assistance from Primary Care's clinical staff, with the appropriate medical documentation.
