Christina Ketcham is a 60-year-old transgender woman who started her transition over four years ago and continues to experience significant distress from the incongruence between her typically masculine facial features and her identity as a woman.

But, the health insurance offered by her employer has a categorical exclusion for all facial feminization procedures.
