TeleKind clinicians specialize in providing care to transgender and gender-nonconforming patients, and we use an informed consent model. We give you the most current information we have about gender-affirming hormone therapy (GAHT), also referred to as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) so you can make an informed choice about what will work best for you and your body 

Your TeleKind clinician will provide you with thorough guidance and dosage information for hormones such as testosterone and estradiol. We follow the genderaffirming care service guidelines set forth by The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). You will never need a mental health letter to receive our gender-affirming care.   

Along with your TeleKind at-home test kit, the Care Navigation Team will also need to order in-person labs for additional testing, but this will still be at no cost to you. You will have the opportunity to choose a Clinical Pathology Lab or Quest Diagnostic Lab location that is most convenient for you.  

So that you know you’re receiving the best care, we will assign you a personal Care Navigator who can help answer any questions you may have including information about your test kit, appointment scheduling, instructions for any additional labsetc. Your Care Navigator will also ensure you receive your prescriptions at little to no cost to you, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.  

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-833-GET-MYTK (1-833-438-6985) Monday – Friday from 8AM to 12PM and 1PM to 5PM 

 

*All appointments and services we offer are free of charge, including lab work when you use our testing kits or lab partners. We will also work with you to ensure any mailed medications are provided at little to no cost to you.
