Where to Find Support and Resources

Gender Reassignment Surgery

  • Saskatchewan residents interested in accessing services should begin by discussing their options with their physician or primary care provider [general practitioner (GP) or nurse practitioner (NP)].
  • Several surgeries may be required as part of the gender reassignment process. The most common procedures, such as hysterectomy and mastectomy, are provided in Saskatchewan. More complex procedures may require sub-specialized training which may not be available within the province.
  • If residents wish to go outside of Saskatchewan for gender reassignment surgery, the Ministry of Health may cover up to 100 per cent of physician costs associated with some procedures, on the recommendation of a recognized authority. Travel and accommodation costs are not covered.
  • Prior approval is required from the Ministry for coverage of specialized surgical services or therapies that are only available outside Saskatchewan. A small number of procedures, mostly considered experimental or non-functional, are not covered.
  • Visit the wesbite or contact the Medical Services Branch at 1-800-667-7523.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

  • Residents who have an active Saskatchewan health card are eligible for coverage of certain hormone replacement therapy listed on the Saskatchewan Formulary. Call the Drug Plan and Extended Benefits Branch at 1-800-667-7581 for details.
