FOLX membership gets you access to expert LGBTQIA+ clinical care, but it also provides so much more! Here are 12 things you might not have realized about a FOLX membership.

1. You can manage your care easily online through your FOLX account. 📱

Your FOLX account provides an easy-to-use platform where you can book visits, see your bills, check on your refills, update your information, and more. You never have to get on the phone or wait for a call back to make an appointment or check your insurance eligibility.

2. You can message your care team whenever you need to. 💬

You can send a message to your clinician anytime and they will respond within a couple of days. Depending on your question, other members of your care team may step in to help with your inquiry.

3. You can attend unlimited support groups. 🫶

Connect with other folks on a similar journey in our support groups and attend as many as you want to. They are always available to you in the FOLX Community Platform. These are live video events where you can listen and share. For folks who don’t want to appear on camera or can’t attend a video event, we also have ongoing discussion groups and chat-based support as well.

4. We can get you any referrals you need. 🩺

As part of your FOLX membership, our Member team can refer you to a specialist or in-person provider in your area, depending on the care you need. We have a national network of surgeons, therapists, fertility clinics, and any type of clinician you might need or want to see in person.

5. We can refer you to non-clinical services, too. 🤗

Our Member team can refer you to all kinds of specialists or in-person care from our national network of providers, but they can also refer you to other services such as legal services, sperm freezing, voice coaching, hair removal services, local LGBTQ centers and groups, and more.

6. We can help you navigate your insurance. 💸

Our Member team can help you navigate the ins and outs of insurance, including prior authorizations for your care, superbills and receipts for therapy or other care, and more. 

7. You have access to guides, resources, and recorded events. 👀

Through our FOLX Community Platform, there are lots of resources to discover such as guides on getting started with HRT, injections, how to get better sleep, thriving on anxiety, how to set health goals, coming out to your family, and much more. There are also past events you can watch whenever you want, like guided meditations or creative workshops.

8. We’ve got discounts to LGBTQIA+ owned brands. 🌈

We feature discounts to LGBTQIA+ owned brands or to products or services our members love every month. Past brands include Urbody, Stealth Bros, Gay Pride Apparel, Both& Apparel, Mars Wright, Nose Best Candles, Couplet Coffee, Equal Love, Origami Customs, Legacy (sperm freezing), Undead Voice (trans vocal training), and more.

9. You get access to a whole community of peers. 🧑🤝🧑

Our members are hanging out in the FOLX Community Platform! Chat with other members, ask questions, or just come on in and see what other folks are saying. Whatever your level of participation, there is something for everyone in the platform.

10. We have discounted lab rates at Quest. 💉

Labs (blood tests or other testing) only need to be done generally 1-2 times per year (as part of an annual wellness visit or for gender-affirming hormone therapy), and they can be expensive when paying out-of-pocket. We have negotiated special lab rates so our members only pay $29-$47 for basic lab work.

11. You can see us for help with fertility and family planning. 👪

If you’re thinking about having kids (either now or in the future), our clinicians can help guide you through your options and give you recommendations and referrals for affirming and inclusive services in your area.

12. We provide letters for name and gender marker change, and surgery. 🏳️⚧️

If you need a letter for your name or gender marker change or an upcoming surgery, your clinician can provide that for you.
