In a story Jan. 11 about health coverage for transgender people, The Associated Press misidentified the company that Kathy Born speaks for. Born is a spokeswoman for PacificSource Health Plans, not LifeWise.
Regulators in Oregon and California have quietly directed some health insurance companies to stop denying coverage for transgender patients because of their gender identity.
"It's just a matter of fairness," said Ray Crider, a 28-year-old transgender man from Portland. "I just never felt that I was like anybody else. I see everybody else being taken care of without having to fight the system."
"This was one of the most incredible things that could ever happen," Crider said, "to know that there's a state full of people who won't have to go through what I went through."
