Worker sues UGA for targeting transgender employees

ATHENS, Ga. (CBS46)- There is a federal court battle over healthcare coverage for a transgender employee at the University of Georgia.

Transcend Legal filed a lawsuit against UGA and Blue Cross Blue Shield saying 31-year-old Skyler Musgrove is being denied coverage for medically necessary care.

Musgrove’s attorney said this sends the message that transgender people are not welcome at the university.

They’re not just hoping to win this case for Musgrove but the entire transgender community.

Skyler Musgrove is a University of Georgia employee. He said he was denied healthcare under a specific exclusion for transgender related healthcare. Read more here.
