Criteria 3 - Employee Benefits & Policies
Up to 20 points
This criteria focuses on the employee as much as the patient in providing inclusive care. These questions don’t only cover health insurance benefits, but also address employee resources groups, LGBTQ-inclusive hiring efforts, transgender-inclusive healthcare benefits, employee transition support, and much more.
It is divided into two scored subsections. The first subsection consists of 13 scored questions and like the other criterion sections, you can either receive full or partial credit depending upon how many initiatives you have in place. The second subsection is related to the provision of transgender healthcare benefits for your employees and is worth 5 points.
