LGBT consumers have different health insurance needs than other consumers. Transgender individuals, are more likely to need prescription drug services.
Health care debates continue. The Obama administration added LGBT insurance information to its website, and the National Gay and Lesbian task force praised the move. NLGTF said the information made it easier for people to find health benefits for their domestic partners.
Easier access to information about health insurance plans geared towards the needs of LGBT consumers may help someone find a policy, but a core problem still remains. People of every race, religion and sexual orientation face this problem. Easy access to information about insurance plans does not make the plans themselves affordable.
Debates over affordable insurance continue. Americans who identify as Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgender are more likely to be employed in part-time jobs that do not offer health insurance.
Statistics about the types of jobs Asexuals are more likely to work in are not available. No scientific surveys have been done about Asexual career choices.
