At Boynton Health we firmly believe no one should be turned away from health care.  We condemn all forms of discrimination in the care we provide to our community and in the programs, services and insurance plans we manage. Those who have experienced discrimination or harassment based on their gender identity or expression can contact EOAA, which is available to address these concerns through informal problem-solving or through formal investigation to determine whether the University’s anti-discrimination policy has been violated.

Frequent questions

How do I make an appointment?

Call 612-625-3222 and ask for a new transgender health appointment. Our Boynton Health's Gender Care Clinic is at Boynton’s East Bank clinic, 410 Church Street S.E. in Minneapolis.

What should I expect at my first appointment?

Your provider will ask you about your current health situation and your health history. Your provider might request lab tests (which requires taking a blood sample) on the same day. You can expect to schedule follow up appointments with your prescriber every month or two. Sometimes you might only need a lab visit. Care is individualized so you and your healthcare provider will talk about the best plan for your needs.

I’m already receiving hormone care. Can Boynton help me continue this care?

Yes but we recommend checking your insurance benefits to make sure Boynton Health is in your network. You should also bring copy of your medical records to your first appointment.  You can schedule an appointment with Gender Care Health provider to discuss ongoing hormone care at Boynton. Call 612-625-3222 and request a new transgender health appointment.

How much will my visit cost?

It depends on your health insurance and whether you pay the Student Services Fee.

A co-payment at the time of your visit may apply. Any remaining costs for your care may be billed to you at a later time. Amounts vary by insurance plan. Consult your insurance card, or contact your health insurance provider for details.

With some exceptions, students who pay the Student Services Fee receive most services at Boynton at reduced cost. See details about the Student Services Fee.
