An Open Letter

To: Rep. Gutierrez, Rep. Mathis

From: A constituent in Tucson, AZ

May 31

This legislation raises significant privacy and healthcare access concerns that must be addressed. Forcing insurers to report private patient information to government agencies is an unacceptable violation of patient confidentiality. Individuals have a right to keep their medical decisions and treatments private. Additionally, requiring coverage for detransition procedures compromises access to gender-affirming care for those who need it. Transgender healthcare is vital and limiting it threatens the wellbeing of an already vulnerable population. The public reporting requirement further jeopardizes patient privacy by compelling disclosure of sensitive personal data. I urge you to reconsider this bill and its infringement on medical privacy rights and access to necessary care. Protecting patient confidentiality and ensuring comprehensive healthcare for all should be priorities.
