Letters of Support

University of Utah Health providers follow the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) Standards of Care. This means we require letters of support to be provided by mental health providers for most surgical services. These letters should be written by a mental health professional.

A patient’s insurance plan may require additional letters or requirements, this will be determined when the patient calls their insurance company and when our team submits for the prior authorization for surgery.

Please send these letters to our team via:

  • email at or 
  • fax them to 801-581-2296 and address it to Attn: Transgender Health Program.
