The FAFP has been receiving inquiries regarding when Florida’s ban on gender-affirming medical care for transgender youth will go into effect so please note the official implementation date is next Thursday, March 16. The final notice can be read by CLICKING HERE, but the new rule prohibits physicians from prescribing puberty blockers, hormone therapy and surgeries to treat new patients younger than 18 for gender dysphoria. The ban on puberty blockers and hormones will not apply to minors already being prescribed these medications prior to March 16 (i.e., current patients can be grandfathered in and allowed to continue with treatment).
