The Affordable Care Act and the LGBT Community
Plans purchased through the Marketplace cannot discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity. You cannot be charged a higher premium just because you’re lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
Plans purchased through the Marketplace cannot deny coverage due to pre-existing conditions, including HIV/AIDS, cancer, or mental health diagnoses. Also, if you are a legally married same-sex couple, you must be treated equally for financial assistance when purchasing coverage in the Health Insurance Marketplace, regardless of where you live.
