The Jim Collins Foundation is very pleased to hear that Emerson and Aetna have clarified their insurance policy to cover Donnie Collins’ medically necessary procedure. It’s critical that other insurance companies follow suit.
The American Medical Association and other leading medical associations have called upon public and private insurance companies to lift the widespread exclusions targeting transgender people. The risk of harm from denial of health care for transgender people is very real.
The Jim Collins Foundation exists to raise awareness of this very serious need and to give people hope. Every dollar raised by the Phi Alpha Tau fraternity in excess of Donnie’s medical needs will go directly to the Jim Collins Foundation to fund life-saving health care for other transgender people.
