'ACP's policy position paper aims to eliminate disparities
in the quality of or access to health care for members of the LGBT
community,' says ACP president
(Washington, May 12, 2015)- Recommendations on how to achieve
health care equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender
(LGBT) patients were released today by the American College of
Physicians (ACP). In "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender
Health Disparities: A Policy Position Paper from the American
College of Physicians," ACP calls for comprehensive transgender
health care services included in health benefits plans and civil
marriage rights for same-sex couples. The paper is published today
in Annals of Internal Medicine.
Evidence suggests that LGBT persons face a common set of
challenges within the health care system. These challenges range
from access to health care coverage and culturally competent care
to state and federal policies that reinforce social stigma,
marginalization, or discrimination.
"These policies often keep LGBT persons from accessing health
care and are also associated with increased rates of anxiety,
suicide, and substance or alcohol abuse. ACP is committed to
improving the health of all Americans and opposes discrimination in
the delivery of health care services," noted Wayne J. Riley, MD,
MPH, MBA, MACP, president of ACP. "ACP's policy position paper aims
to eliminate disparities in the quality of or access to health care
for members of the LGBT community."
ACP's Health and Public Policy Committee reviewed published
studies, reports, and surveys on LGBT health care and related
health policy to inform its recommendations. Some of ACP's key
statements and recommendations are:
The American College of Physicians is the
largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest
physician group in the United States. ACP members include 141,000
internal medicine physicians (internists), related subspecialists,
and medical students. Internal medicine physicians are specialists
who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the
diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the
spectrum from health to complex illness. Follow ACP on Twitter and Facebook.
