Cynthia Hermann, MD, is a gynecologist who has worked with our transgender population since her arrival in 2011. She can assist in hormone therapy once it is initiated by your primary physician or hormone specialist. This assistance could include administering hormone injections, monitoring your labs in between visits with your hormone specialist, and following your overall healthcare needs. (Note: The SHWC cannot be designated as your PCP due to health insurance restrictions and regulations.)
Labs can be drawn at the SHWC with an order from your outside physician, including your initial labs.
Hormone replacement treatment (HRT) is covered under the United Healthcare Student Resources health insurance. These prescriptions can be filled at local pharmacies. Depending on the type of HRT prescribed, the cost could fall into Tier 1 ($15), 2 ($40), or 3 (20% coinsurance).
