DISB's annual report now online

The Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking (DISB) has just released 2013-2014 Biennial Report.   Some of the accomplishments highlighted in the report are:
Preventing discrimination in health care One of the department's actions in early 2014 advanced the rights of the city's transgender community by prohibiting discrimination in health insurance based on gender identity and expression. The department issued a bulletin requiring District health insurance companies to provide coverage for gender dysphoria, or gender identity disorder, as a recognized medical condition thereby permitting those with gender dysphoria to obtain medically necessary benefits.
