LGBTQ Care

UofL Physicians and the UofL School of Medicine have joined together with the LGBT Center and community members to develop an important initiative focused on addressing the health care needs of the LGBTQ community.

Our goal is to develop services that support the diverse needs of the LGBTQ community through improved access, provider and team member training, and the implementation of a comprehensive patient care model.

UofL Physicians - Family Medicine and Internal Medicine providers and staff have been at the forefront of this initiative. Our compassionate family and internal medicine expert providers have been delivering patient-centered care for the LGBTQ community and are committed to meeting the needs of all of our patients. And as members of UofL Physicians, we are also committed to referring patients to other expert and compassionate specialists when specialty care is needed.

We urge you to share your feedback on the care that you receive in these practices by sending an email to WeAreListening@ulp.org so that we can continue to improve our services. 

UofL Physician's Non-Discrimination Statement: 

All patients will have access to treatment regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity (including gender expression), sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status, family/parental status, the source of payment, or political beliefs. UofL Physicians complies with applicable federal civil rights laws and does not discriminate.

As part of our LGBTQ Care Initiative, UofL Physicians understands that LGBTQ community members have unique concerns regarding protected health information and name changes. While these instructions are the same across the UofL Physicians health system for all patients, we hope that by placing them on this web page they are even more accessible. UofL Physicians understands that transgender and gender nonconforming people can have unique concerns regarding name and gender marker changes, as well as amendments to one’s medical history where necessary.

Request for Correction/Amendment of Protected Health Information.

You have the right to request the UofL Physicians (ULP) make corrections or amend your protected health information (PHI) if you believe something in that information is in error or needs to be amended. PHI is personal information that specifically identifies an individual. Examples include your address, phone number, SSN, medical history, test and lab results, insurance information – anything a healthcare professional collects to identify an individual. You can use the following process to change your name and/or gender marker.

Please note that we are not always required to make the corrections or amendments you request, but each request will be carefully reviewed, and corrections or amendments will be made if warranted. For example, we cannot change information that has been created by a health-care provider outside of our organization. You will be notified when your request has been approved or denied. 

Instructions for Completing Amendment Request Form

  1. Please complete this form using your legal name and gender or by what UofL Physicians currently has for you in the system.  This is how we will locate you in our system to review your request.  
  2. Please scan and include documents to support your request. For name or gender marker changes, please provide state or federal issued documents (i.e. driver's license, passport, court ordered name change, etc.) Please also include your insurance card(s). It is important that the gender marker in your UofL Physicians records marches the gender marker on your insurance card.  
  3. Once the form and supportive has been completed, e-mail it to HIMChangeRequests@ulp.org
  4. You will be notified of the acceptance or denial of your request within 60 days of receipt of this request.

We are working to build our database of LGBTQ-friendly providers at UofL Physicians. More will be added here as they opt-in to our database.

The physicians and providers listed on the UofL Physicians LGBTQ webpage have expressed a commitment to serve the LGBTQ community.  They requested to be listed on the page to show their support and interest in delivering respectful, quality health care to the LGBTQ community.  They are striving to have their practice’s staff and providers updated and trained to create a welcoming setting and deliver skilled health care inclusive of LGBTQ patient needs.

Some providers are completing specialized training to enhance their clinical skills in working with LGBTQ patients.

Some offices are also training their staff team in LGBTQ cultural competency.

We urge you to share your feedback on the care that you receive in these practices by sending an email to WeAreListening@ulp.org so that we can continue to improve our services.
